Live music was back at Marktplatz too this weekend with a Festival of Classical/Jazz from The Music Schools in the Bonn/Rhein-Sieg area.
This weekend saw good weather to enjoy the “Music School Festival Bonn/Rhein-Sieg”. It’s an initiative of the Bonn Ludwig van Beethoven Music School. Sponsored by the BTHVN2020 Beethoven-Jubiläumsgesellschaft GmbH, it was also one of the last projects to take place in this “extended” Beethoven year. Symphony and salon orchestras, bands, chamber music ensembles and choirs presented a diverse program in Marktplatz and all free of charge.
Both stylistically and geographically, the “Musikschulfest Bonn/Rhein-Sieg” spanned a wide range. In addition to ensembles such as the Bonn Youth Symphony Orchestra, the salon orchestra “Le Bon Ton”, the “RMS JazzOrchestra & friends” of the Rhenish Music School Cologne and the symphonic wind orchestra “Tomburg Winds” from Rheinbach could be enjoyed. But for me, the greatest enjoyment came from all the smiling faces on the stage enjoying playing music.
