About the Event
Travel back to the grand Baroque era and dwell in winter dreams with a festive Christmas concert in Berlin's Charlottenburg Palace Orangerie.
Christmas — a time full of festivity and for many people associated with the desire for peace and reflection. Music can give us these moments, which is why we cordially invite you again this year to our touching festive concerts on December 24 and both Christmas holidays in the Great Orangery of Charlottenburg Palace!
The music of George Frideric Handel has touched people's souls for centuries. The Berlin Residence Ensemble, conducted by Alexandra Rossmann, will perform excerpts from his oratorio 'Messiah HWV 56,' including 'But who may abide the day of His coming,' the Pastoral Symphony and 'He shall feed his flock like a shepherd.'
The music of Johann Sebastian Bach and the Concerto grosso op.6 No.8 'Fatto per la note di Natale' by the Italian Arcangelo Corelli with its famous Pastorale will warm your hearts and bear witness to mankind's longing for peace and harmony.
Let yourself be enchanted by the festive sounds and immerse yourself in the contemplative, Christmas atmosphere!

Schloss Charlottenburg - Orangerie
The Schloss Charlottenburg Orangery is part of the historic palace in Charlottenburg, Berlin. Built between 1709 and 1712 in the Baroque style, the Orangery was originally designed to house the royal citrus fruit collection in winter. Now a prestigious venue for all types of events, including classical concerts and gala dinners, the Orangery welcomes many talented performers. The Berliner Residenz Orchestra regularly performs musical masterpieces of the Classical and Baroque period, wearing costumes from the 17th and 18th centuries.
