Hour of music

Interior view of the impressive Freylinghausen Hall

The Kammermusikverein Halle e. V. was founded in 1990 by interested chamber music lovers in order to continue the chamber music series "Stunde der Musik" (Hour of Music) which has existed since 1952. In this traditional concert series with six concerts per season, highly appreciated by chamber music audiences and connoisseurs, high-ranking soloists and ensembles of national and international demand perform demanding programmes. The well-attended concerts have a worthy setting in the Freylinghausen Hall and are integrated into the cultural programme of the Francke Foundations.
