To mark the start of the Beethovenfest 2023, we invite you to the ceremonial opening of the festival headquarter Kreuzkirche. From 1.9.–24.9.2023, the Beethovenfest will use the Kreuzkirche as its central venue in the heart of Bonn. For this purpose, the church space has been elaborately redesigned by the Bonn artists' collective freeters, pews have been removed and a place of encounter has been created, based on this year's festival motto »Music on life«.
Speakers will include artistic director Steven Walter and the artist collective freeters, who will be presenting their installations to the public for the first time. Afterwards, there will be the opportunity to view the artist Robin Minard's sound installation "Threatened Soundscapes" on the church forecourt in his presence.
The festival headquarters will be open daily from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. during the festival period - for all people, even outside the concerts.
