Day of Historical Theatres

Day of Historical Theatres on October 25th, 2023 in Theatre Putbus

Every year, on the Day of Historical Theater, the Förderverein Theater Putbus e.V. organizes interesting events for its members and guests. This day was created by PERSPECTIV, the Society of Historical Theaters in Europe, to draw attention to these important cultural monuments. Almost all PERSPECTIV theaters are offering something special on this date. In 2023, the Europe-wide events will be held under the motto "Theatre for Peace".

The Stralsund Enthusiast Orchestra has firmly established itself in Stralsund's concert life with its concerts with the Philharmonic Orchestra. It arose from an idea for cooperation by the former General Music Director GoloBerg and brought together amateur musicians from a wide variety of professional groups with members of the Philharmonic Orchestra to give concerts together. The idea was to lure out the dormant talents of many music enthusiasts from behind the stove, to open up new audience groups for the theatre, to bring amateur musicians at a higher level with professional musicians on stage and thus create a common enthusiasm for making music. A win-win project.

The current GMD Florian Czismadia continued the project and finally handed it over to the current musical director: David Behnke. In the meantime, various concert programs have been rehearsed and performed. In order to ensure continuity independent of the theater projects, active members of the orchestra decided in 2018 to found the association "Enthusiastenorchester Stralsund e.V.". This means that the orchestra can also carry out projects without the theatre.
