EventKonzert for the Kaiser: a Fundraiser for Fine Arts Restoration
PlaceDANK Haus German American Cultural Center
Address4740 N Western Ave

The Bach and Beyond Ensemble presents Telemann&rsquo s Concerto in D Major for 2 Oboe d&rsquo Amore, cello, and string orchestra at the DANK Haus German American Cultural Center on November 18, 2012.     Artistic Director Scott Will leads the Ensemble in a program that also features treasures of Mozart, Bach, and Bruckner and Bibel.


This outstanding afternoon of Germanic works is a benefit concert with a portion of ticket sales dedicated to restoration of the large-scale painting of Kaiser Wilhelm I in the DANK Haus German American Cultural Center collection.  The 6&rsquo by 9&rsquo oil was painted in Prussia c 1870 and framed in the elaborate gilded style of Chicago&rsquo s premier film houses.  The piece has only been publicly viewed since 2009 and is in need of extensive restoration to its impressive frame, crafted by Chicago&rsquo s German wood carvers at the turn of the last century. 



Tickets range in price from $12.00 to $20.00 in advance and are available for purchase online at or by phone at 773.561.9181
