Lehniner Sommermusiken

This year, the Lehnin Summer Music Festival will be French. The summer festival at Lehnin Monastery presents music from France from the 16th century to the present. Solo concerts in the monastery church, chanson evening in the cloister, highlights from an opera by Jean-Philippe Rameau with baroque dance promise great concert experiences across a diverse French musical culture.
