Traditionally, on the final festival weekend thousands of visitors stream to the Galgenberg Gorge in Halle.In Bridges to Classics, they experience some enthralling bridge-building between classical Baroque music and modern rock. This “symphonic rock concert” takes place against the breathtaking and atmospheric, natural décor of the Galgenberg Gorge in Halle, and closes with a fireworks display.The creative mind behind the concert, saxophonist, conductor and university professor Bernd Ruf, is one of the most innovative personalities in classical crossover. His GermanPops Band& Singers and a selected team of top musicians will be supported by Staatskapelle Halle and a special guest from the world of rock music who is certain to “fire up” the audience. Who this special guest is will remain a secret until the spring.
