Every Saturday at 17:00 we invite you to the new concert series in the legendary convent of St. Gabriel in BerlinWestend. Perhaps you know this extraordinary place personally, perhaps you have read in the press that the convent of the "pink sisters", who have prayed there around the clock since 1936, had to close at the beginning of the year for lack of the young offspring.

Veranstaltungen in Berlin: Samstagskonzerte im Kloster St. Gabriel
Oleg Borisov

Since then, 28 women with children from Ukraine have been living in the convent. Thanks to the efforts of Gero Scheele and Alla Belikova of Perspective-UA, they have found a refuge from the Russian war of aggression in the spacious rooms of the convent. Later, a German-Ukrainian school and kindergarten will be built here. There are still many Ukrainian children who do not have a place in a kindergarten or school in Berlin and are not integrated into society.

In October, together with the solo violist of the German Symphony Orchestra Berlin and freelance conductor Igor Budinstein, the idea was born to bring the Church of the Annunciation to life musically. During the Christmas season, the organizers invite the residents of the Westend as well as all Berliners to the extraordinary concert series. Top-class musicians together with music lovers play exciting works of music literature on the six consecutive Saturdays until Christmas Eve. From virtuoso string jumps to well-known melodies of film music, from undiscovered works for a chamber orchestra to baroque hits and organ music at Christmas - the program will satisfy the most demanding musical tastes.

All concerts are moderated by Igor Budinstein in an entertaining and instructive way. The average duration of the concert is one and a half hours without intermission. Ukrainian refugees are cordially invited and, of course, get a free entrance. For all other guests the price is 25 euros, which covers the costs. All guests are welcome to make an additional monetary donation for the Ukrainian refugees, which will be distributed by Perspektive-UA and the Scheele School to the needy Ukrainian families in the form of donations in kind.
