Musik & Laternenfest 2016

In its first year with a new name, the “Musik und Laternenfest” was a great success. Friends and families of the DSD Community and beyond gathered on the school’s field to enjoy a day filled with music, food, dance and fun in the sun. A variety of bands filled the line-up, some of them returning from the last years, such as “Zisamo” and “Unpluck’d” while many others, namely “The South Jersey Pom Pom’s” and “Generic”, graced the DSD stage for the first time. A very special surprise act was classically trained Soprano from Ireland, Megan Ruby Walsh, who surprised the audience with a classic German “Lied” and an Irish folk song. Plenty of food was available, ranging from pancakes to goulash soup and drinks such as Kiddies Glühwein as well as a flea market stall that sold all kinds of fun goodies. The children also had plenty to keep them busy, with activities such as a colouring-in station, face-paint and the German classic “Flaschenziehen”. The field was a colourful array of people, pic-nic blankets, camping chairs, adults singing and kids dancing. Everyone agrees: We can’t wait to do this again next year!
