|Festival of Sacred Music
3. 16. of December 2002
Following on from last years enormous success, the House of World Cultures is planning another Festival of Sacred Music for December 2002. The most diverse sacred music traditions encounter one another here - beyond all dogmatic and denominational boundaries at the time of three great religions festivals: the Christian Advent, the Jewish Hanukka Festival and the Islamic Ramadan. The religious search for spiritual experiences and for experiences forming identity opens the door to the vision of a common dialogue. The highlights of the Festival of Sacred Music 2002 will be the invitation of a Japanese priest ensemble from the Todaiji Temple in Nara , as well as concerts Tibetan monks living in exile in South India.
