It has already been ten years since the Cernau Cultural Association moved to the city center. This will be celebrated with an anniversary program in the fall. Reason enough for Chairman Erwin Schierhuber to think about what the new event location at sparkasse.event.raum means for the club. “After starting in the atmospheric cellar on Syrnauerstraße and a year in the old town hall, sparkasse.event.raum became the cultural association’s new ‘home base’ ten years ago. We called the inaugural festival ‘Syrnau Finds the City’ because it puts us right in the middle of the city,” he says. “.
Further improvements were made by the special attention given to sound when building the room. “With our professional sound and light equipment, this results in one of the most attractive large-scale concert venues, which has been confirmed to us time and time again by artists and guests at over 170 concerts.” Venue in September 2013 with a variety program: Vernissage Martin Leitner, Hodina Austria, XL jam session, children’s theatre, street music, double concert, panel discussion.
