Half-time Of Celebration Year

In the first half of the year, around 3,600 concert guests have celebrated the 70th year of the Collegium musicum Potsdam symphony orchestra.  Eight concerts, among them operetta performances in the Biosphäre, celbration concerts with Shostakovitch's 12th symphony and Classical Music on Weberplatz as a piano night, brought a wide range of works from different eras and styles.


Eliana Printes

During this time the oldest orchestra of the state capital Potsdam was able to welcome internationally celebrated soloists, such as  Lars Hoefs (cello, USA/Brazil), Elena Soltan (violin, Cottbus), Hagen Schwarzrock (piano, Magdeburg), Vagner Ferreira (piano, Brazil) and singer Eliana Printes (Brazil).

After the summer break, the Collegium musicum will continue its special concert year with unusual programmes. Audiences can already look forward to a Spooky Night in the Biosphäre and a reappearance of the orchestra's first guest conductor, Parcival Módolo (see article below).

CMP needs a grand

donationAt its symphony concert on April 19, 2008, the Collegium musicum Potsdam symphony orchestra launched a fundraising drive under the motto "CMP needs a grand". Since a concert grand piano is becoming increasingly important for the orchestra’s rehearsals and concerts, donations will be collected for a time to help with the acquisition of this special (orchestra) instrument for the orchestra’s inventory. 250 Euros were collected on the first day already -– an excellent start. The donations currently amount to: 6446.27.

A heartfelt thank you to all donors!
