Domplatz attracts music from classical to pop.


The Domplatz Open-Air once again attracts music lovers from classical to jazz to R&B and pop to St. Pölten this weekend. On Friday, the Tonkunstler Orchestra plays with soul and jazz stars, and on Sunday the “Pop am Dom!”

On Friday, under the motto “Tonkunstler & Friends”, not only classical music lovers will get their money’s worth. China Musa is on stage as a guest star. In addition to her debut album “China”, the American jazz and R&B singer has released two other productions of her own. British singer Miles Sanko, originally from Ghana, will perform funk and soul music.

This mix of music was specifically chosen, says concert director of the Tonkunstler-Orchester Niederösterreich Vahid Khadem-Missagh to “As an orchestra, we cover a broad musical spectrum from Leonard Bernstein to the present. It is very important for us to overcome genre boundaries and continue to develop a new form for our audience,” says Khadem-Missagh.

Constanze Eiselt, music curator at the festival hall, also sees opportunities for the orchestra at the concert: “Tomorrow’s concert is an opportunity for the orchestra to show its wide musical range.”

Sunday brings electro-pop stars to the stage

On Sunday we continue with “Pop am Dom”. The St. Pöltner Combo Salamircorder and Hi-Fi Phonos will start at 5:30 p.m., followed by the electro duo HVOB and Arlo Parks and the electro-pop star Fever Ray who will close the evening. The concerts are organized by Tangente St. Pölten and Festspielhaus St. Pölten.
