"Beethoven in the Post Tower Lounge" open to all citizensBonn, 03/09/2006, 10:30 AM CET
Concerts, readings, matinees, and movie showings - the Post Tower Lounge in the Headquarters is once again a key element in the Group's involvement in this year's Beethoven Festival. The exclusive Beethoven Lounge on the premises of the Bonn Post Tower will be set up for the entire duration of the music festival, which takes place from August 31 to October 1, 2006. In cooperation with the Beethoven Festival, the Group presents a different cultural program about the life and works of Beethoven in the Tower Lounge each day.
Monika Wulf-Mathies, head of Corporate Public Policy and Sustainability, describes the Group's involvement: "With our sponsoring we are once again expanding the offer of the Beethoven Festival in 2006 as well. We want to get more people, and especially the younger members of the public, excited about Beethoven and classical music. A successful Beethoven Festival also increases the appeal of the city of Bonn. It is not just the city and its citizens that profit from this, but over time companies will also benefit by gaining new employees."
"Last year the Post Tower was already visited very frequently by the public as an unusual venue for a variety of cultural events. We are very pleased that the Beethoven Lounge has now become a permanent part of the music festival," says Manfred Harnischfeger, the Group's Head of Corporate Communications. Because of its unique architecture, the Post Tower offers a modern concept in which the atmosphere of big city lounges and classical music create a delightful combination.
