On Tuesday, 14.02.2023, the Lions Club Big Band Benefit Concert took place in the Dreiländerhalle Passau. Also this year AKE technologies GmbH did not miss the opportunity to support the charity event.
The Maristengymnasium Fürstenzell under the direction of Bernd-Michael Tack, the Gymnasium Leopoldinum Passau under Michael Beck, the Gymnasium Untergriesbach under Elisabeth Rickl, the Gymnasium Vilshofen under Bernhard Glessinger and the Auersperg-Gymnasium Passau under Christoph Rose took part in the event.
The students inspired with their arrangements and reinterpreted classics like "Skyfall" by Adele Adkins & Paul Epworth, "Mack The Knife" by Kurt Weil or "From A Distance" by Julie Gold. The big band evening of the dedicated young musicians lasted about 3 hours.
Patron of the event was Lord Mayor Jürgen Dupper. The proceeds benefit the music promotion of the participating high schools and regional children and youth work. Among other things, it will support the purchase of musical instruments and sheet music for school orchestras and youth music groups. AKE is pleased with the success of the benefit event and is proud to have played a part in this successful evening.
