Sadovnik: Women artists of high rank and recognition
Teresa Bergman, who comes from New Zealand and lives in Berlin, is presenting her new album, the song titled “33, single and break” has already played in Lörrach. Her appearance at the 2021 Voice Festival at the Burghof was very well received, said Sadovnik, who has only been at Lörrach since March and also took over this new series of events from his predecessor Markus Muffler.

It should not be in the music section, leave the direction open. “We have an uncomplicated and open collaboration,” said Dengl. Sadovnik also appreciated the “close contact” between the employees of both houses.

Free admission to the concert at “Nellie”
The series was scheduled for four concerts, but one artist canceled her guest performance on “Nellie” because her tour dates were canceled, Dengl said. This is about the pandemic. The only concert there is free to attend – donations are still welcome – because Nellie still receives government funding to offset the risks of a lack of planning certainty. Otherwise, according to Dengl, the entrance would be 20 euros.
Burghof concerts take place in the lobby. Sadovnik would like to have lounge or bistro style seating. He finds the topic of women at the center exciting because “the huge gender disparity is becoming apparent” in the music landscape. Women are less represented, “among musicians they are extremely rare.” It is an experience to be able to show these “little pearls”.
