Impressive charity concert in the heart of the Allgaeu region: various regional musicians perform for the humedica famine relief in Africa

by Steffen Richter,  2012/04/09

That evening, a total of 50 musicians performed on the stage of the “Dampfsäg”, a small historical sawmill hall in Sontheim, a little town located in the heart of the Allgaeu region. An almost incredible number of artists, whose commitment can be attributed to the organisers of the association Kammlacher Kleinkunstfreude.

And the audience at the traditional and sold-out “Dampfsäg” was enthusiastic about the performances, but above also about this special form of aid they made possible by means of their presence. At the end of the day the amazing amount of 2,000 euros had been collected and a few days ago Angela Wagner handed over this sum to humedica employee Clemens Matern.

We live in a blessed area, we are well-off, and because we are so well-off we would like to contribute to making other people happy as well!” Angela Wagner, co-initiator of the charity evening of the Kammlacher Kleinkunstfreunde, explained the motivation of the organisers right away.

The evening programme also showed that the Allgaeu region has a lot more to offer than only the much-praised traditional folk music. Starting from the youth choir Angel Voices via the traditional brass music of the musical society Musikverein Unterkammlach to comedy performances, the numerous active artists demonstrated the cultural diversity of their home region.

The humedica team would like to express its heartfelt thanks for this admirable support of our work at the Horn of Africa. Our special thanks goes to the organisers of the Kammlacher Kleinkunstfreunde and to all the musicians involved. We wish them God’s blessings.
