SONGS final concert
Due to the Covid 19 pandemic and the "lockdown light", the concert has to be postponed again.

The new date is 05.02.2021.

If possible, we would like the concert to be hybrid, i.e. physical and digital. The hygiene concept of the SpardaWelt event centre provides for a certain visitor capacity, which we must strictly monitor. To what extent this is possible will be decided depending on the situation.

We kindly ask for your understanding.

All those remaining at home can follow the concert on our YouTube channel via livestream.
