At 7.30, 8.30 and 9.30 PM there will be little sampling demonstrations of the abilities of our ensembles in bars in the Dresden Neustadt quarter. The programmes will feature works from the baroque era, the classic-romantic repertoire to Viennese Waltzes, Tangos by Astor Piazzolla and contemporary composition for percussion ensembles.
»›On Tour without tailcoat‹ is an original idea of the Society of the friends of the Staatskapelle that was taken up very enthusiastically by our musicians. Even though the Semperoper is definitely one of the most beautiful venues, we do believe that music needs to be a part of the whole city. We should not wait until people are coming to us, we should be the ones to approach them. It was great to see how interested people and also barkeepers have been last year. We are sure that ›On Tour without tailcoat‹ does have cult potential and we want this format to be a permanent part of the schedule of the Staatskapelle.«
With the hashtag #OHNEFRACK all visitors are invited to share their experiences at the events. Live sequences will be featured on the Facebook page of the Staatskapelle at www.facebook.com/staatskapelle.dresden .
The visit to the events is free of charge. The project is supported by the Society of the friends of the Staatskapelle Dresden e.V. as well as by Radeberger Pilsner.
The detailed programme can be found on www.staatskapelle-dresden.de/neustadt
