In our last newsletter we informed you about the plans for the international project “BTHVN 2021 – Passion meets Profession”, which will take place in autumn 2021 and is organised by the German Association of Amateur Orchestras (BDLO).
One part of the project is “BTHVN 2021 – The Orchestra”: an international amateur orchestra under the direction of Markus Stenz, which will take place from 17 to 21 September 2021. The highlight of the project will be the concerts on 20 September 2021 in the Concert hall at the Kulturpalast in Dresden and on 21 September 2021 in the St. Peter’s Church in Leipzig. The rehearsal language is English.
A large part of the preparations are done, the programme is set: From now on, you will find all information about the programme, dates, conditions of participation and the online registration form the website of the project. The closing date for applications is 11 April 2021.
Together with our conductor Markus Stenz, I cordially invite you to take part in this unique international amateur orchestra.

We look forward to receiving your applications.
