About the Event
The singer David Rose is one of Europe's most important swing vocalists.
His exceptional voice caused a sensation at an early age and he was later encouraged by the German jazz pianist Horst Jankowski and trained by Thomas Karcher. In the meantime, the adopted Berliner has been singing with the most famous big bands and symphony orchestras. The magazine 'Stern' called him 'the new star in the swinging sky'.
Accompanied by internationally renowned jazz musicians, David Rose will perform songs from his new album, which he recorded in New York City with Lee Musiker (Tony Bennett's musical director) and jazz legend Bucky Pizzarelli. Rose presents rarely heard songs from the Great American Songbook in his unique and unmistakable crooner style. Her melancholic, swinging voice gives an authentic touch to timeless jazz standards and awakens the joie de vivre of the swing era.
The French Church Französischer Dom is one of the three key buildings at the Gendarmenmarkt, the most beautiful square in Berlin. The church was built as a place of worship for the Huguenots, followers of the Protestant Reformed Church of France, who were persecuted in their own country and found asylum in Berlin in the reign of Frederick the Great.
The French Cathedral stands opposite the German Church or Neue Kirche, their identical domes and styles forming a stunning architectural ensemble. Unusually, in this location, 'Dom' refers not to a German 'cathedral', but to the French 'dome'. The building houses the Huguenot museum, a restaurant and a viewing platform that offers a gorgeous view of Mitte district of Berlin.
