GRAZ

Jerusalem ist die spirituelle Hauptstadt der halben Menschheit, der Sehnsuchtsort für Juden, Christen und Muslime zugleich.

Jerusalem erleben heißt Spüren: Vielfalt, Gegensätze und Buntheit; Geschichte und Zukunft.

Das Festival „Sounding Jerusalem“ ist vor 17 Jahren in der Altstadt von Jerusalem entstanden. Seit drei Jahren haben Orient, Okzident – und die Botschaft des friedvollen, gemeinsamen Miteinanders – auch in Graz ihre Heimat gefunden.

„Sounding Jerusalem ist mein Herzensprojekt. Das Konzert bringt die Faszination für die Stadt und ihre Menschen zum Klingen und es ist eine musikalische Friedensbotschaft.“ 

Erich Oskar Huetter
