Classical New Year's Eve Concerts – Musical Fireworks
At the end of the year, a night full of unforgettable impressions will be offered to visitors of the Classical New Year's Eve Concerts when selected dishes will be served before the Berlin Residence Orchestra celebrates a melodious farewell to the year.
What is better than music to celebrate a sweeping transition from the old to the new year? In front of the magnificent backdrop of Charlottenburg Palace, you can immerse yourself in the period of baroque Venice with Vivaldi, wander with Mozart through the Viennese classics and lose yourself in the swirling Hungarian dances of Johannes Brahms. And when the famous Danube waltz of Johann Strauss is heard, it is time to say goodbye to the old year and festively welcome the new.
Sensorial End of the Year – A Festive Menu for the Concert
Upon request for concert goers, the last evening of the year will begin with a delicious dinner. As part of a three-course menu at the Berlin Marriott, creative ideas will meet high-quality seasonal ingredients and, in the context of the baroque palace, are combined to form a feast for the senses.
The ensemble consists of well-known musicians, who interpret baroque and classical opera with a keen sense of the compositions from that era. In April 2016 the orchestra under the direction of Bruno Schmidt celebrated its tenth anniversary!
