The Federal President of Germany’s traditional fundraising concert was held in Rhineland Palatinate for the first time ever on April 16, 2011. The incumbent President Christian Wulff and State Prime Minister Kurt Beck welcomed the more than 2,100 guests to the Rheingoldhalle in Mainz. The German State Philharmonic Orchestra of Rhineland Palatinate under the direction of Karl-Heinz Steffens gave a spectacular concert. In keeping with the motto “Viva Bolero”, the program included works from Nikolai Rimski-Korsakow, Anton Rubinstein and Maurice Ravel. A 23-year-old pianist named Joseph Moog was the soloist on this evening.

The proceeds from the benefit concert will go to the reading foundation “Stiftung Lesen”. This organization supports nationwide reading projects for children and young people. SCHOTT AG acted as one of the main sponsors of the concert. “We view the work of Stiftung Lesen to be extremely important, especially when it comes to instilling a sense of reading enjoyment and skills among children and youth. By taking part in this initiative, we also want to help in communicating values to young people,” the Chairman of the Board of Management of SCHOTT AG, Prof. Udo Ungeheuer, noted in explaining why the technology group supports these efforts.
