Alte Oper Frankfurt
Saturday, 26. November 2022
Participation by special invitation only.
Tickets for the public concert are on sale now.
After a long forced hiatus, we are excited to finally host the PASS Late Year Benefit Concert again! It's the concert and party night for a good cause. As in 2019, all proceeds from the concert will go to the construction of another school in Africa. It will be built in Malawi, and the project will be realized locally by the Reiner Meutsch Foundation Fly & Help.
About the artists
When exceptional violinist, concertmaster, rapper and lyricist Miki Kekenj and his chamber music "Takeover! Ensemble" takes to the stage, his fans from classical and pop alike follow him. With soul queen Joy Denalane, he presents an emotionally groovy program and breaks down the boundaries between soul and classical music. Where drums, bass and keys usually set the tone, violoncello and clarinet take over - so two apparent opposites come together in the greatest harmony on the stage of the Alte Oper Frankfurt. The last two albums by soul singer Denalane, "Gleisdreieck" and "Let Yourself Be Loved," are very personal works on which she creatively packages her most diverse facets and life experiences. With "MIKI's Takeover! Ensemble" exciting arrangements have been created - rousing, spherical, intimate ... and of course unplugged!
