The second Sunday in september is dedicated to the “Day of the Open Monument” in Germany. This festvie day is organised by the “Deutsche Stiftung Denkmalschutz”, the German Heritage Foundation. On its eve, the Rostock Chapter of DSD usually arranged a benefit concert for St. Mary’s Church in collaboration with the Hochschule für Musik und Theater Rostock (Rostock Academy of Music and Performing Arts). In 2020, the concert had to be relocated due to corona measures. So it took place on Sunday September 13 in St. Mary’s church. Prof. Stefan Hempel directed the Chamber Orchestra of the HMT with a programme with works by Bach, Telemann, Barber and Holst. In difficult times, this concert was acclaimed by the audience, and EUR 1,300 were raised for the organ restoration’s fund. Thank you very much!
