“I’d love to come back again!” – so violin virtuoso Franziska Hölscher, after her visit to Berlin Cosmopolitan School.
On February 14 the BCS string players had a rare treat. Between her concert tours around the world Franziska Hölscher made a stopover at BCS and presented what fingers and bow can achieve on the violin. The organization “Rhapsody in School” had made this visit possible.
The event “One World Many Voices” in the Grüner Salon on Friday 9 in Berlin-Mitte was again a great success.
The easiest way to connect is through music. BCS students, special guests and refugees of many different countries met at the salon and even on stage for the first time and it felt like a big family celebration. Thanks to Lucy (Grade 5), Alexander (Grade 11), the BCS Rock Bands: Thunderstruck and Random, Niko F., the Folk Duo “Nightlark”, Singer/Songwriter Joey Ryan and the musicians and project leaders from the MitMachMusik it was an inspiring evening of great tunes and happy faces.
For the second time on February 9 at 6 pm the Berlin Cosmopolitan School’s “Open Community Club” (OCC) hosts an event in support of the Refugee Community here in Berlin. This event intends to celebrate diversity in this city and supports the idea of creating an artistic network for those who ended up in Berlin to escape the troubles they had in their home countries.

On Tuesday, February 14, our Junior String Orchestra will have the unique opportunity to be close up to a true violin virtuoso. Watching and listening to Ms Hölscher’s playing as if being on stage with her will be surely an unforgettable experience.
