We want to enable all people, regardless of income and social situation, to participate in music and culture. That's why in 2017 most of crescendo's events took place for the first time with free admission. In 2021, we will continue this philosophy for the fourth time.

Nevertheless, there are of course costs involved in producing a two-week festival. Therefore we kindly ask you for your donation. With any amount, whether two or 200€, you not only honor the commitment of the artists who perform without fee, but also support the presentation of our artistic work in the future.

How can you support us?
Donating is very simple!

This year's festival depends on your donations. Since unfortunately no concerts with an audience can take place, the Freundeskreis der UdK Berlin | Karl Hofer Gesellschaft e.V. is collecting donations via Betterplace .
