I like the organ beginning a lot. What was the protest about, Secretaris-Generaal Michiel?

As I understand it the city government didn't want to support the elementary school on the Thomas Choir School campus, despite earlier promises. So the new choirboys are first taught outside the campus, before they enter the Thomas Choir School.
Here is a report about it in German: www.mdr.de/mdr-info/Bachfest-Eklat100.html

Interesting that there seems a strong interest in joining the choir. In Canada hockey is the religion.

I think more German young men want to join a soccer team than this choir ;-)

I'd rather have a choir friend than a football friend.

From the choir school newsletter I understand that young mr. K. is also rather good at football: he scored three goals in a game against a choir school in Dresden.

He's academic, cultural and athletic... bet he's very popular at school.

And not very popular with the politicians of the City of Leipzig, but I guess that is not so bad.
