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

Already for the fourteenth time the members of the circle of friends came together on Thursday evening on the occasion of the blue hour in the kunsthalle messmer.

This year, the much-praised event was all about charity. All proceeds went to Prof. Dr. Dr. Laszig’s project “Deaf children learn to hear”. He thanked all guests and especially Mr. Messmer for the great commitment and confirmed that every cent directly benefits the children.

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

Of course, guests were also able to visit the highly acclaimed, sophisticated “Dalí – The Magic of Genius” exhibition quite 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, in keeping with Dalí’s homeland, presented Spanish folk songs as well as their own compositions, rounding off the evening to great applause.

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