Preface

Dear music lovers!

Artists from all over the world showcasing contemporary music embedded in a local environment, that’s what the Monheim Triennale will be about.

However, the festival is not just about music experience in the sense of listening and watching. Another important objective is to interconnect the festival with the city’s inhabitants. The people of Monheim am Rhein have a passion for music. Each primary school has its own orchestra and nearly two thirds of the city’s children learn an instrument. The festival opens up new opportunities for the city’s citizens which we want to make use of.

The festival brings the world to Monheim am Rhein. Together we can experience the creative power of music beyond national borders.

I am looking forward to the first edition of the Monheim Triennale in early July 2020. Meanwhile, the city is also getting ready for the second edition in summer 2023. Until then the extensive refurbishment of the future festival venue Kulturraffinerie K714 is to be completed. Exciting developments - for all of us.

Mayor of the City of Monheim am Rhein
