GTV Almrausch, The Damenchor Wald Echo And The Franklinville-Schwarzwald Männerchor At The Christmas Village In Philadelphia, PA On December 6, 2014

This blog entry features performances by GTV Almrausch, Damenchor Wald Echo and the Franklinville-Schwarzwald Männerchor.  GTV Almrausch is a German Schuhplattler dance group and Damenchor Wald Echo and the Franklinville-Schwarzwald Männerchor are German choral groups.  They appeared at the Christmas Village in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on December 6, 2014.

As you can see in the photographs and video footage, there was a hard rain coming down.  The camera lens faced interference from raindrops and fogging.  I was soaked.  I stood out there filming.  None of my umbrellas were nearby so I went to the Village without any of them.  I do not mind - it was well worth it since I was interested in seeing these acts bring the German culture to the German Christmas Village.

I parked ten blocks away.  Considering how busy Philadelphia is, I park at the first spot that I see.  As I walked down Arch Street, I decided to get a couple shots of the skyline.  You can see how nasty it was outside.

I took a walk, a wet walk, around the Village.  Here are some shots ...
