To the Livestream

This year’s traditional Advent concert will be once again held at the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation in Bonn with the Foundation’s Siebold Hall being transformed into a digital concert hall. Only the musicians, Secretary General Enno Aufderheide and the moderators Zoe Antonia Kusmierz and Steffen Mehlich will be present in the hall. However, since the concert will be broadcast by livestream, many more listeners than usual will be able to experience the performance. Members of the Beethoven Orchester Bonn will play clarinet quintets from Mozart and Brahms. Enno Aufderheide will guide you through the evening and offer a brief look at the Foundation’s activities over the past year.
