On 3 June the German orchestra Dresdner Sinfoniker is planning a concert on both sides of the US-Mexican border, in the Friendship Park between Tijuana and San Diego. The project is aimed to be exclusively funded by its Kickstarter Campaign. By performing together with Mexican and American musicians, the orchestra will take a stand against policies of isolation, fanaticism and nationalism.

30 years after Ronald Reagan’s famous demand ‘Mr Gorbachev, Tear Down This Wall!’, the Dresdner Sinfoniker will not only protest against President Trump’s so-called ‘beautiful wall’ but also against European isolation and, most importantly, against the walls in people’s minds.

The Kickstarter campaign is here.
