«orchestra with great radiance»

The wish for «freedom» is a central topic of humans and the arts. In retrospective and on behalf of the peaceful revolution and the wish to be «free» Leipzig has an impressive history. In 1989 thousands of people ignited candles on the Augustus place in Leipzig. Every year on the 9th October the Festival of Lights keeps this memory alive and commemorates this meaningful event. The Freies Orchester Leipzig was founded in occasion of the Festival of Lights 2018 and performed on 9th October at the Augustus place Leipzig in front of 15.000 people.
