Berlin Loves U
4 auditioned ensembles for a new chapter in Berlin’s choral scene

The focal point of this event is the “Berlin Loves U Award Concert”. The award will be presented by the audience of the Philharmonie Berlin.

In addition, a “Showcase Concert” in one of Berlin’s best concert churches, a 3-day working session on creating a joint performance for the Chamber Music Hall of the Philharmonie and the performance of Carmina Burana at the Philharmonie Berlin on the final day of the CHORALSPACE Summer Festival 2022 will round-out this once in a lifetime experience.
