Parcival Módolo named First Guest Conductor

Brazilean 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 this 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!
