RundfunkchorLounge »30 Years Fall of the Wall«


The third RundfunkchorLounge of the season commemorates the fall of the Wall 30 years ago - and the time when the Wall was still standing. For us, too, this was a drastic time, which we as Rundfunkchor Berlin could not experience in our old and present home on Masurenallee in the Westend; at that time we were settled in Nalepastraße at the GDR radio station. Some of the choral works written during this time are wrongly forgotten, and so on this evening we want to give an insight into the GDR choral music, to which we feel obliged by our history. As always, chief conductor Gijs Leenaars and members of our choir will be performing in various formations - in the large choir, in the vocal ensemble or as soloists. Let us surprise you. The journalist and writer Matthias Frings will be a guest. Admission is at 7 p.m., the programme begins at 7.30 p.m.; DJ Malfatti will provide atmospheric lounge music afterwards.
