Bridges – Music Connects
With "Musikzimmer", KfW Stiftung is creating a stage for a wide variety of musical groups and initiatives from the Rhine-Main region. In the historic ambience of Villa 102, the audience is not only offered an insight into the diverse musical culture of the region, but also the opportunity for exchange: the musicians do not limit themselves to the music, but also enter into dialogue with the audience. After the first concert on 18.11.2021, the second concert on 27.1.2022 will also be performed by an ensemble from the transcultural music initiative Bridges - Music Connects. Further details about the ensemble will be announced soon.
Bridges – Music Connects has been bringing together musicians with and without a history of flight and migration since the beginning of 2016 and has since played around 400 concerts in Germany and abroad. The members perform in orchestra and ensemble formations that are characterized by the interplay of instruments from the Orient, Occident, Far East and Latin America, while incorporating the musical cultural backgrounds of the participants. Concert activities range from refugee shelters to the Alte Oper Frankfurt to the German government and from concert series in Frankfurt venues and museums to international festivals in Italy and Uzbekistan.
Bridges – Music Connects has participated in the KfW Stiftung's "ANKOMMER.Perspektive Deutschland" programme and was awarded the Special Impact Award in 2018 and "The Power of the Arts" in 2019. The debut album "Identigration" by the Bridges Chamber Orchestra was released in co-production with hr2-kultur and received the German Record Critics' Award 2/2021 in the category Grenzgänge.
