Founded in 2021, the NOACK concert series presents the best soloists and ensembles from all over the world on the grounds of the Werkstattgalerie and in the Great Hall of the Bildgiesserei. The unique interdisciplinary atmosphere and the sophisticated programme design have already found a regular audience. A Saturday evening at the NOACK Kulturforum is more than just a concert: the doors open at 6 pm so that concertgoers can enjoy the current exhibition in the gallery with a glass of natural wine. The performance starts at 7 pm and is curated by Mark Prihodko. After a handful of encores, the audience is invited to the Kulturforum restaurant to enjoy dinner with the artists. A three-course menu specially prepared by chef Reza Daeinabi with a corresponding selection of wines is the crowning glory of the evening.

Further concerts are being planned for 2024. We will inform you about the new programme as soon as possible.
