With heart, caution and a high degree of flexibility, the Dresden Music Festival is currently preparing for its 44th festival season from May 14 to June 12, 2021. The aim is to provide world-class musical live events under the motto »Dialogues« in Dresden – while giving top priority to the protection of the health of the audience and organizers. For this reason, director Jan Vogler and his festival team are in constant dialogue with politicians, artists and the festival partners.
On 23 January , Jan Vogler will join pianist Tiffany Poon for a concert of works by Bach and Beethoven at Dreamstage. Proceeds from the concert will be donated to the Associated Musicians of Greater New York Emergency Relief Fund.

On December 12, Jan Vogler will perform live from the Kulturpalast together with the Dresden Festival Orchestra. The event will be broadcast live on the streaming platform Dreamstage at 8 pm. The program of this evening will combine works by Johann Adolph Hasse, Nicola Antonio Porpora and Antonio Vivaldi, among others, and will build a musical bridge from Dresden to Italy.
With the proceeds from the virtual tickets the Dresden Music Festival wants to support especially the freelance musicians of the Dresden Festival Orchestra.
The Start-Up Dreamstage offers a digital platform for live concerts that works like a virtual concert hall – access is only possible with a purchased ticket. All genres are to be represented in the medium term – at the start there were mainly classical concerts.
