This video segment features ISBerne faculty members Christian Stübi, elementary music teacher, and David Ritsema, elementary and secondary music teacher, at a concert this past Sunday night at the Catholic Church of Gurmels (canton of Fribourg). The program was entitled “Hallelujah for the Soul” and included an eclectic repertoire of music, all relating to spirituality in some way…from the enigmatic lyrics of Leonard Cohen to an Argentine folk music-infused composition of Ariel Ramirez. The audience, that filled the church that night, was engaged and responsive.
Christian is the musical director, conductor and vocal coach of the 38 member choir, which has been performing for nearly 20 years. David was able to pursue his interest in indigenous musical instruments from all over the world in the incredibly lovely Misa Criolla.
