Youth shone with music and dance

Music and dance at a high level presented on Saturday children and young people at the youth festival in the city castle. For five years, the city has organized the talent show with witty and typically Franconian elements. The sympathetic dance and music artists convinced with surprising and moving performances. This special cultural initiative gives hope that children and young people will be familiarized with culture, said Third Mayor Bernhard Christoph. Making music at an early age promotes a positive community experience, makes an important contribution to personality development and strengthens all the positive qualities that we depend on and that enrich life: concentration, creativity, expressiveness and self-confidence. Christoph emphasized that young people today are different in their forms of expression and habits than in the past. And then began a 90-minute show that didn’t have to take a back seat to any professional adult performance. “Colorful Leaves” was the theme of the evening, which the two moderators Lea Giebler and David Hoppner spiced up with numerous autumnal anecdotes and poems. Simeon Schmitt and Florian Klerner opened the round with guitar music.

Classical music and ballet

The first highlight was presented by Doris Diroll and her ballet group, who performed “La serenissima” expressively danced the Rondo Veneziano. Young pianist Jonathan Burger continued with the Rondo by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Finn Scholl and Jonas Hirle interpreted the Autumn Legend by Linnemann.

It depends on the size

It depends on the size

The local association Neuhaus with its local boys, above all Julian Eibert, had invited on the past weekend to the fourth tent kerwa. And a tent was not wrong. Even though the temperatures were still quite pleasant, every now and then a damp shower came from the sky.

At 16.30 o’clock the Kerwasburschen with the “Kleinwachenrother village music” pulled on a decorated wagon for the “Kerwa zamspielen” through the village and they took turns marching and singing cheeky Kerwasliedli among themselves. In between all Festumzugler had to refuel again and again powerfully “tank. The donation box followed the wagon and so lads and musicians in the whole village loudly announced the beginning of the Kerwa.

Nine-year-old Bianca stood enthusiastically at the roadside: “I want to go on the boat swing, fish for ducks, draw lots and, of course, shoot!”, revealed to the FT. It is also already custom that the village elder Maria Schmidt, she is almost 97 years old, is invited to the Schnapsla.

Music sets the mood for the festivities

For the first time without cabaret

For the first time without cabaret

Visitors to the open-air festival can look forward to a weekend full of homemade music, a wide variety of sounds and surprise effects
5. Kitzinger Sommers from Friday, 12. July, until Sunday, 14. July, on the fairground of the old synagogue look forward. For the first time, the open-air festival is purely a music festival. “We no longer have cabaret in the program. There are so many cabaret events. It no longer makes sense to be in competition with each other”, Richard Arndt-Landbeck explains the decision.

A cappella capital

It starts on Friday, 12. July, with “Vivid Curls – Triple winner of the German Rock and Pop Award. Inka Kuchler and Irene Schindele write many of their songs themselves, mixing powerful folk rock with Allgau dialect. “They are newcomers and in our region still unknown musicians”, says Arndt-Landbeck.

On Saturday, 13. July, three bands will share the stage of the
7. A cappella night. None of them have any instruments with them – except their voices. As hosts, the Kitzingen “Soundchexx” will make with their German and English repertoire and loose sayings between the pieces the beginning. “Muttis Kinder stand afterwards on the stage. Originally actors, they now combine rock and pop as well as classical and jazz as singers. The highlight of the evening will be the five men of “Fool Moon” from Hungary.In their homeland, they have long been audience favorites, and the title of their latest CD already gives an idea of what to look forward to: “GeorgeMichaelJackson5”. The a cappella night has become a permanent fixture in Kitzingen’s cultural program. Originally it originated at the Kitzinger city festival. For the third time it is now part of the Kitzinger Sommer. “Kitzingen is the a cappella capital of Lower Franconia”, Arndt-Landbeck is convinced.

Melancholic sounds

At the end on Sunday,
14. July, Caro and Andi Obieglo from “Carolin No” will play. Their songs, which the couple writes themselves, are mostly melancholic and intense. Multimedia enriches the concert with video projections. “The two mix folk music with county and classical elements”, describes Arndt-Landbeck.

By the way, the Kitzingen Summer will not be canceled in case of bad weather. If it rains, all events will be moved to the Old Synagogue, where there are about 300 seats available. Therefore, only 300 tickets will be sold in advance for the time being. According to Arndt-Landbeck, on the Wednesday before the Kitzinger Sommer it will then be decided whether the festival will take place indoors or outdoors. On the festival square 1000 visitors can celebrate, dance and sing together. “The place offers a unique ambience”, says Thomas Most. The open-air festival is organized in cooperation with the city marketing association and the municipal cultural work of the Old Synagogue. They both pursue the same goal with the Kitzinger Sommer: “Our claim is to offer self-composed music, no cover bands”, says Arndt-Landbeck.
