Programme 2021

One of the special highlights at The Prequel was the opening night, when the Signature-Musicians played a "Round Robin" on the ship "MS Rheinfantasie", i.e. a concert in which they relieved each other on stage and thus improvised one after the other solo and together with up to two different colleagues.
