In cooperation with “So geht sächsisch.” and the project “Zuhause in Prohlis” (At home in Prohlis), the Dresdner Sinfoniker met the challenges of the Corona pandemic with a hitherto unprecedented concert on 12 September 2020: numerous alphorns and brass instruments played from the highest roofs in Dresden, transforming the Prohlis district into an urban concert hall. The audience was free to move around the district or sat on their own balcony quasi in the box. Markus Lehmann-Horn, the composer, had written a new work especially for the occasion, which, like the other pieces of the evening, went beyond the scope of a classical concert and brought people together.
A production of the Dresden Symphony Orchestra in cooperation with “So geht sächsisch” and the Societaetstheater Dresden. Supported by the City of Dresden – Office for Culture and Monument Protection, the Dresden Cultural Foundation of Dresdner Bank, Vonovia SE, the Prohlis Municipal District Office and the Foundation Art and Music for Dresden. With the kind support of Zuhause in Prohlis, Greve-Studio Berlin, Neumann & Müller Veranstaltungstechnik and Sachsen Fernsehen. The concert is co-financed by tax funds on the basis of the budget passed by the members of the Saxon State Parliament.
