The Beethovenfest Bonn is one of the oldest and most important music festivals in Germany. Founded in 1845 by Franz Liszt in Beethoven's birthplace, it is now an internationally recognized cultural beacon with around 70 events in Bonn and the region every year in August and September.
Under its artistic director Steven Walter, the Beethovenfest is currently repositioning itself: as a festival that reaches out to all demographic groups, a festival that thinks radically contemporary and future-oriented to a living tradition, testing out the future of concert life in a variety of ways and playing a significant role in shaping it.
Dear supporters of the YsOU,
today is a special day! After intensive days of preparation we could start today with the presale of the Beethovenfest Bonn 2022 and therefore tickets for our solidarity concert with the Youth Symphony Orchestra of Ukraine and Oksana Lyniv on 29.08.2022 in the Theater Bonn are now available. Detailed information about the concert program and tickets you can get online via our website (german only - english version will be added asap!).
With the start of ticket sales for the Beethovenfest and the Solidarity Concert, we are entering a second phase of our fundraising campaign. While we only need a small remaining amount of about 5,000.00 EUR to cover all production costs, from now on every ticket sold for the concert will also count as a donation - all ticket proceeds will be forwarded to the orchestra so that they can continue to do their work under the most adverse circumstances. And also here on betterplace we continue to collect donations for the orchestra and therefore we would like to renew our appeal to spread this campaign. The concert with the YsOU will take place, only through your donations this goal could be achieved! Your commitment works and directly benefits the young Ukrainian musicians! Therefore, please continue to motivate your friends, relatives and colleagues to get involved in this project! THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR HELP!
We would like to take this opportunity to invite you to take a look at the rest of our festival program. On our website you will find information about all events, and we also publish podcasts, articles and videos in our online magazine.
In our program presentation and press conference today, Barbara Massing, managing director of the foreign broadcaster Deutsche Welle talked about the project with the YsOU. You can also find this video on our website! (german only - sorry again ;-) )
We are incredibly proud and grateful that we can realize this project with your help! Here's to you!
