For the fifth time in a row, Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG and the renowned Gewandhaus Orchestra transformed the Leipziger Rosental Park into an open-air concert hall. On the 29th and 30th of June 2018, the summer concert series "Klassik airleben" enters the next round. Andris Nelsons performs the two summer evenings with classics of film music & piano music by George Gershwin.
This cultural commitment is beneficial to all the city’s residents and visitors. With the support from Porsche, the Gewandhaus orchestra is reviving its open-air concerts in the Leipzig Rosental park. These were held for the first time in 2004. Admission for these popular open-air concerts, featuring well known classical works, has been free since 2014. Last year there were 65.000 visitors in Rosental – a new record attendance.
