The concert hall

The theater hall and its concerts

The hall

The theater is located in the middle of the University next to the cafeteria lake. The hall is a worthy home for the Bösendorfer grand piano, which purchase was possible thanks to a significant donation from Mariann Steegmann.

The hall was originally built for theater. However, today it is available for cultural events of all kinds. It offers 153 seats in nine rows of 17 seats each and the semi-circular stage can accommodate a rectangle of 10 x 3m or 8 x 4m.

Location

The theater hall is located on the right side of the passage from the tram stop Universität / Zentralbereich to the cafeteria. At the tram stop, a big and colorful mural indicates the way to the hall.

The concerts

Concerts for smaller ensembles are performed at regular intervals throughout the semester. They vary from solo performances up to groups of eight or nine musicians and cover virtually all musical genres, including classical, tango, jazz, rock, pop, and ethnic music from all over the world. The concerts are performed by students and teaching staff of the University of Bremen as well as by guest performers from Bremen and all over the world. Ideas and feedback are warmly encouraged and welcome at all times.

The lunch hour concerts 

Informal lunchtime concerts are held in the theater hall every Tuesday at the popular time from 12.30 p.m. till 12.55 p.m., during which members of the audience are welcome to (quietly) eat their packed lunches. Admittance to these concerts is free!
