A Festive Occasion

An invitation to a Christmas concert at Assumption church provided a few unexpected surprises. The church is in the downtown area of St. Paul and was founded in 1856 to serve newly immigrants from Germany. The architecture is Romanesque. Their Christmas concert is renown for decorations and music. But I was unprepared for the stunning beauty inside the church.

The pictures speak for themselves. Christmas music with carols and a few songs sung in German added to the solemnity of the evening. 

I do have to say that an added bonus for me was being with a lady who is a professional photographer. She showed me how to use some extra features on my camera I had never used before. And wow... what a difference it made following her advice to take these pictures with so many bright lights.
