Concert & workshop for young bands in Berlin, 4-6 May

Friedrich Barniske of the Hot String Quintet of Berlin reports: 'We are looking for two bands (3-5 musicians), one from Ireland, one from Poland or the Czech Republic - both from the acoustic music scene. Age should be 18-27 years; there should be female and male musicians in the groups. We will pay travel costs, accommodation, and food, but no fee. Also we will show the visitors a bit of the town and will visit some other interesting concert together.'

The bands involved should arrive in Berlin on Friday 4 May at lunchtime; the program will include a concert, and a workshop on the following day, returning home on Sunday 6 May in the early afternoon. The venue for concert & workshop is the cultural youth club CAFÉ LIETZE in Berlin-Charlottenburg.

This project is organised by the Amt für Jugendarbeit Kirchenkreis Charlottenburg, as part of YOUrope07, a program of the Confederation of German Youth Organisations, financed by the national youth plan for more participation by young people.
