Bad Neuenahr. Water fountains will dance 30 meters into the night skies, synchronized with music, light and laser images. A popular attraction, 16,000 people visited the event last year at the Kurpark in Bad Neuenahr.
Organizer Roland Nenzel says everybody will know “99 percent of the songs” at the upcoming Klangwelle (Waves of Sound) event in Bad Neuenahr. Puccini’s “Nesun Dorma” and 60’s hit “San Francisco” are just two of the songs that will be featured in harmony with colorful illuminated water fountains. The spa town of Bad Neuenahr is famous for its water sources so it is fitting that it will catapult waves of water upwards to create a striking image. Water in all its beauty.
The event will take place on two weekends in the Kurpark of the spa town Bad Neuenahr: Thursday, September 5 through Sunday, September 8, and Thursday, October 12 through Sunday, October 15. The park will open for visitors at 6pm and the duo “saxOsing” will play classics and hit songs to warm up the crowd. The shows begin at 8pm and finish at around 10pm. Culinary offerings are also on hand.
Last year, 16,000 visitors attended the event, which combines water, light, fire and lasers, all in harmony with music of various genres. While the water dances, bathed in colorful light, images and videos are projected by lasers across a giant “hydroscreen”. The show is divided into four acts; Act 1 is accompanied by rock and pop music, Act 2 features music from the Rhineland, Act 3 contains “Summer of love” music and Act 4 features classical music.
Up until September 10th, those who are planning to attend can influence the musical choices by writing in with their music requests. This can be done per e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org or over Facebook :www.facebook.com/wassershow
