Klangwelle is back in Bonn. From 7 – 10 October near the DHL Post-Tower with all proceeds going to those affected by the recent Ahr Valley flood disaster.
As was the case when the Klangwelle was presented at Münsterplatz, the program will be divided into three-show blocks of 20 minutes each and feature a fascinating play of colors from light,
music and laser effects to create a wall of water and a breathtaking atmosphere. New to Bonners who remember the Münsterplatz shows is that there is also a varied supporting program.
Traditionally for Bonn, the show consists of three parts: Classical, Rock/Pop and Rhenish. In the classical part, the Beethoven anniversary in 2020 will be recognized with a “Beethoven meets Beathoven” show. The rock/pop part is a journey through some of the great rock/pop anthems in music history, and the finale will be an XXL “Rhenish” sound wave (I have no idea what that is – so you will have to go to find out!
Monika Schaller, Head of Corporate Communications, Sustainability and Brand at Deutsche Post DHL Group: “Over the past few weeks, the sound wave at the foot of the Post Tower has taken more and more shape and has the excitement for a great program rising. Now we are happy to get started and hope that
that as many donations as possible can be collected for the flood victims on the Ahr. This is a great campaign that we support.”
The set-up began on September 26 with the show designers from Vienna spending a few nights programming and rehearsing with over 100 high-power pumps, shooting jets with a height of 45 meters.
There were also countless spotlights and laser systems to be set up and programmed. Add this to beautiful music and it will be an evening to remember for certain.
Safety from Corona is also a major concern. The health insurance company AOK Rheinland/Hamburg will be present at the premiere with a vaccination mobile and a small information stand.
In addition, the organizers have decided to keep a total of around 500 premiere tickets free for those affected by the flooding free. “We want all those affected, despite their losses and also traumatic experiences, to get back some normality” says promoter Julian Reininger.
There will also be live music with opening acts: in the first week local brass band “Knallblech” and in the second week the “saxOsing” will warm up the audience. The shows are presented by “Mr.
Klangwelle” Roland Nenzel and the Radio Bonn/Rhein-Sieg presenters Stephan Unkelbach and Nico
