The Hamburg State Opera and the Philharmonic State Orchestra open their performances and concerts to refugees through a sponsorship program.
In order to develop a network of volunteers, we would like to invite committed citizens who are already in contact with refugees to take advantage of our offer together with their newly-arrived companions.
We would also like to speak to other potential volunteers who wish to help, but have not yet found the right project to do so. Interested refugees and volunteers should contact Christoph Böhmke (firstname.lastname@example.org, Tel.: 040-3568624) who is in charge of coordinating volunteer-refugee pairs. The attendance of a performance or concert is free-of-charge for the refugee.
Following each event, we invite the attendees to get together and potentially make new contacts.
We believe, that music possesses an utopic ability to bring people together: refugees, the volunteers and the members of the State Opera.
