Upcoming Concert in Germany will Feature Car Horns and Engines

If your Germany-bound clients are torn between wanting to speed down the Autobahn and take in a classical concert, this just may be the happy medium between the two worlds: The New York Times is reporting that in Mannheim, car horns and engines will be among the soloists scheduled to perform a new musical piece on September 10.

Called “Autosymphonic,” the composition will be performed at the city’s Friedrichsplatz outdoor arena to celebrate the 125th anniversary of the combustion-engined, three-wheeled automobile developed by Karl Benz in the German city and patented in 1886 (pictured right).

The concert will feature the SWR Symphony Orchestra of Baden-Baden and Freiburg, with the SWR Vocal Ensemble from Stuttgart. Adding punctuation and rhythm will be 81 autos selected for their symphonic attributes, if not their on-road performance.

You can nab tickets to the concert at www.autosymphonic.de/en/tickets-2.
