Annettes DaschSalon (Annette's DaschSalon)

Since January 2008, the celebrated soprano Annette Dasch has been welcoming illustrious guests and enraptured audiences to her part-recital, part-talkshow evening salon, in which audience members get the chance to prove their musicality. While variously singing, chatting and drinking tea, the charming salonnière soon wins over her audience – from regular lovers of "lieder" culture to those who developed their passion after their first visit to the salon. The names of the musical guests remain a mystery until the very moment they appear on stage. Annette's DaschSalon is recorded for ZDFkultur and 3sat.

Barock Lounge (Baroque Lounge)

In the Barock Lounge, Baroque music meets club culture: The young Elbipolis-Barockorchester from Hamburg performs live, and Brezel Göring of Stereo Total or another DJ transforms the Baroque sounds into new, playful and rhythmic electro tracks. After the show, the musicians mix with the audience – a new space is created for relaxation, exchange, and spontaneous musical experiences.

Nachtmusik (Night Music)

This is a very special series, one which has accompanied and influenced RADIALSYSTEM V from the very beginning: Night-time concerts where the audience can chill out without the need for suits or the usual pomp. Audience members at the Nachtmusik concerts relax on yoga mats with pillows while listening to concerts by small ensembles and soloists in Studio A during the late hours.

Ich-kann-nicht-singen-Chor (I can't sing-choir)

So you never sing? Except maybe alone, in secret, under the shower? Everyone who has ever wanted to sing in a choir but never dared to take the plunge is now invited to regular open singing sessions at RADIALSYSTEM V. The "Ich-kann-nicht-singen-Chor" ("I can't sing-choir") first got together in January 2011 at the Chor@Berlin choir festival: The great response and enthusiasm shown by would-be singers signalled the start of a new event series, which regularly takes place at RADIALSYSTEM V under the direction of Michael Betzner-Brandt. Simply come along and join in the singing!
