Impressions of the 14th Blue Hour on October 11, 2018 - Charity Event

For the fourteenth time, the members of the circle of friends came together on Thursday evening in the messmer art gallery to celebrate the blue hour.

This year, the highly acclaimed event was all about charity. The entire proceeds went to the project of Prof. Dr. dr Laszig “Deaf children learn to hear”. He sincerely thanked all guests and especially Mr. Messmer for their great commitment and confirmed that every cent goes directly to the children.

The champagne reception was followed by a varied buffet, which was accompanied by exquisite wines from the Holub winery in Herbolzheim. The entire range of the family business could be tasted.

Of course, the guests could also visit the highly acclaimed, sophisticated “Dalí – The Magic of Genius” exhibition exclusively after the museum closed. The highlight of the evening, however, was the musical performance by Lea Qin Messmer (mezzo-soprano) and Biljana Knab (pianist and composer), who presented Spanish folk songs and original compositions appropriate to Dalí’s homeland and rounded off the evening with great applause.

We would like to thank all our guests for this wonderful evening and we are already looking forward to the next event!
