Sold out concerts, several standing ovations during each show and press, radio and TV interviews.
Christine Schuhmann’s concert tour of Western Canada was another exciting and successful venture! The enamoured audiences and organizers have already asked her to return to Alberta and BC.
Prior to the tour, Christine was interviewed by a Canada-wide news publication, the Albertaner. She also had several radio interviews and a TV interview. While in Edmonton, OMNI TV recorded her show. Look for additional articles about the tour in Das Echo, Albertaner, The Carillon and other news publications throughout North America.
Christine was ushered into her sold-out shows by an emcee and the audiences greeted her with standing ovations. She welcomed the crowds in several languages and then inspired the audiences for over two hours with yodeling tunes, folk, pop and classical world hits, as well with her original songs.
Christine also entertained the crowds with stories about her music career, her multilingual ability, stories behind the songs, and amusing tales about her tours. Her last song of the shows, “Ave Maria”, was performed majestically and brought tears to many. The finales stirred the crowds to additional standing ovations to thank Christine.
During intermissions of her concerts Christine signed autograph cards and CD covers for long lines of people. Many new friendships were made and her fan community grew again by a large number.
After the shows, Christine and her husband/musical collaborator Hermann together with some of their fans, spent a few days hiking as well time on the lake enjoying the hot dry weather out West.
This is what the amazed audiences had to say about the concerts in Western Canada:
