“A role model for all of us”
Autumn concert of the Lufthansa Orchestra for help alliance
This article begins unusually – with the end. The audience got up in the Langener Stadthalle and with standing ovations, they enthusiastically showed respect for a brilliant musical evening for several minutes. For two hours, more than 60 musicians from all parts of the group had taken the visitors on a musical journey through two centuries of European music history under the tried and tested direction of Colin Touchin.
The proceeds of the evening were donated to the help alliance, which presented itself at a booth in the foyer. Help Alliance Managing Director Joachim Steinbach announced that the donations will go to an educational project in Puerto Rico, which has recently suffered severe destruction as a result of Hurricane Maria. A particularly nice gesture: the musicians of the orchestra, who have a special connection to the Lufthansa Technik location through their concert tour to Puerto Rico, had spontaneously let a donation bag go around in their ranks before the concert and were able to hand over around 600 euros to Joachim Steinbach.
