Cello Special with Lars Hoefs (USA/Brazil)

Drei alte SchachtelnAfter a long time, the cello will again be the focus of a concert of the Collegium musicum Potsdam symphony orchestra in Februrary. American cellist Lars Hoefs will present his instrument in a broad spectrum on Saturday, February 21, at  Frederic Church in Potsdam Babelsberg, and on Sunday,  February 22, at  Martin Luther church in Zeuthen.


The programme includes well-known works such as the cello concerto in D-major by Joseph Haydn and the Rokoko variations by Peter Tchaikovsky, but also a contemporary work with more unusual sounds, the Punena No. 2 by Alberto Ginastera. Also heard,

for the first time in Potsdam and Zeuthen,

 will be the heartfelt Larghetto from Paul Graener's "Musik am Abend".

Tickets for the concerts on February 21 at 7.30 PM and on February 22 at 4.00 PM are available at the ticket outlets of MAZ and PNN.

Parcival Módolo named First Guest Conductor

Braziilean conductor Parcival Módolo was named First Guest Conductor of the  Collegium musicum Potsdam symphony orchestra on the occasion of symphony concerts on 22nd and 23rd November 2014 at Frederic Church  in Potsdam Babelsberg and Herz Jesu Church in Berlin Zehlendorf.


Parcival Módolo

Parcival Módolo, who is one of Brazil's leading conductors, has already inspired musicians and audiences
in the two preceding years. More than once, he has made it possible to get to know music by Brazilean composers who are virtually unknown in our latitudes, and to perform some of it for the first time in Potsdam and Germany.


Parcival Módolo will visit Potsdam again next year to cooperate with the Collegium musicum Potsdam symphony orchestra.

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: 6108.23.

A heartfelt thank you to all donors!
