“(Marggraf and I) have a relationship that goes back about five years,” Grundstad-Hall said. “Halle, Germany, is the sister city to Savannah, and with a university in each town, it makes the two nicely connected. Jens has come to campus about three times now as a guest lecturer, and I recently traveled to Germany to present a recital and masterclasses to voice students there.”
The event is co-sponsored with The Teutonic Council, an organization comprised of three German Cultural Societies, including The German Heritage Society, The German Friendly Society of Savannah and The Georgia Salzburger Society.
Admission to the concert is free and for more information, visit georgiasouthern.edu/armstrongtickets.
