Friends and Furtherer

In 1993 dedicated friends and festival visitors decided to found the club »Friends of the Music Festival Potsdam Sanssouci«. The club currently has 160 members from Potsdam, Berlin, the State of Brandenburg and from all over Germany.

We, the friends and supporters of the festival, are not only united by our enthusiasm for the festival and its unique setting in the palaces and gardens of Potsdam Sanssouci, we are also motivated by our firm belief that this festival with its focus on Old Music could not exist without additional support and civic involvement. Apart from this notion the club also supports selected festival events and individual performances.

Members of the friends’ club benefit from individual meetings with the artists, access to dress rehearsals as well as information regarding future festival events long before these are otherwise made public including the opportunity to buy tickets before the official sale to the general public.

We warmly welcome all music lovers and friends of Potsdam’s palaces and gardens to our club!

Supported projects in 2020

»RoseDanceSonatas« on 26th June | 27th June
Everyone loved the winners of the 2019 lunch concert competition with their choreographically staged concert. Their debut in the freshly restored Palace Theatre sees Europa Danzante find surprising means for translating baroque master Biber’s »rosary sonatas« into movement and dance.

In 2019 the lunchtime concerts featuring tomorrow’s big names turned out to be very popular with audiences. We are again introducing four young ensembles to a panel chaired by Dorothee Oberlinger – and there’s a lot at stake: a concert slot at the Music Festival in 2021.
