We had two more concerts in Liepzig, both in churches where Johanne Sebastian Bach was the music director. The first Church, Thomaskirche, is actually the place where Bach is buried. We sang 3 feet away from his tomb. The second church, Nikolaikirche, is an amazing Baroque style church that houses an organ with over 6800 pipes. After we sang at the Nikolaikirche, the organist was nice enough to play for us. I have a video of him playing Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D minor, which was awesome.
Liepzig is a really beautiful city but I'm convinced that I'm going to go because there are some great shops...can't wait till my truck get's sold so I have some extra cash.
We're actually in Dresden right now, and it is amazing. The architecture is incredible and there are places where they have rebuilt using the charred bricks left over from the original construction before the fire-bombing.
