It is a tradition that on the last weekend, thousands of visitors stream to the Galgenberg Gorge in Halle. In “Bridges to Classics”, they witness a fascinating bridging between classical Baroque music and modern rock. This “symphonic rock concert” takes place against the breath-taking 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 and a selected team of top musicians will be backed up by Staatskapelle Halle and a special guest from the world of rock music, who’s sure to fire up the audience.
