In order to help the needy people in Ukraine, many artists have signed up for a high-calibre concert in cooperation with the Bonner Pantheon together. The dazzling entertainer Adrienne Haanwho has performed on Broadway in New York and at Carnegie Hall, hosted the evening on 8 June and delighted around 200 audience members with well-known show tunes accompanied by her trio.
"On behalf of Aktion Deutschland Hilft e.V., I would like to thank so many visitors for coming to this event and sending a signal against war through their support."
Manuela Rossbach, CEO of the aid organisation, was pleased. And after a musical interlude "Cabrett" things really got going: the voice of the American jazz singer Soleil Niklasson literally shone like the sun - had insensitivity and colour. She and her band took their audience on a musical journey full of emotion and pure "joie de vivre". Christina Luxa shining light among the many singer-songwriters, performed with her companion Oliver George on guitar and vocals. Evi Niessner fascinated with her own glamorous aura and enchanted the audience with French chansons à la Edith Piaf. Improvisation artist Christian Padberg ("Dad's Phonkey"), is quite an extraordinary talent. Originally a drummer, he puts himself on stage all by himself - with nothing but his voice (sometimes with a little echo) and a loop station. The crowning finale was the Bonn Jazz Choir. He offered vocal artistry at the highest leveleau.
