Local Classical Featured Playlist – 11/29/21 – 12/12/21
For this week’s playlist, we connected with the Carmel Christkindlmarkt to create a playlist that will get you in the holiday spirit. Maria Murphy is CEO and Market Master of the Carmel Christkindlmarkt and our guest curator for this playlist. She graduated from her high school a year early to travel and take advantage of the Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange scholarship program. Maria stayed in two different places during her stay in Germany, first near Dresden and then near Hamburg. During her year in Germany, she learned to speak the language, developed a network of people she has stayed in touch with to this day, and bonded with the culture and country which she calls her second home. This experience has translated to her at role Christkindlmarkt, and she is thrilled to have the opportunity to serve our community and all of central Indiana and the Midwest.
The Carmel Christkindlmarkt has brought the old-world charm of Christmas in Germany to Carmel, Indiana. The Carmel Christkindlmarkt is an open-air Christmas market in traditional German style, and was founded as a nonprofit organization in 2017 with the support of the City of Carmel and Mayor James Brainard. It runs annually from November 20th through December 24th.
We’ll hear Maria speak about her experience at Christkindlmarkt, and works she helped pair for this playlist. Connect with Classical Music Indy’s Local Classical channel to hear our Christkindlmarkt playlist.
