The KunstSalon Köln has been staging the festival since 1997. After Hamburg and Berlin, which have been there since 2008, this year the doors of private hosts will also open in the Ruhr region. Private hosts organize the individual concert evenings in their living and work rooms, in studios and work rooms, lofts and shops. With a personal touch and great attention to detail, chairs are set up here, small stages are installed, musicians and guests are welcomed and entertained. The direct contact between hosts, guests and artists makes the festival a unique cultural experience in Germany.

The opening concert in Hamburg will be held on November 3rd by the pianist and ECHO award winner Ragna Schirmer, who is the host here for many other Hapag-Lloyd cruises. On November 4th, the "Studnitzky Trio" will play extraordinary jazz over the roofs of St. Pauli, hosted by Atos Asset Management AG. In addition, the string quartet of the Hamburg Symphony Orchestra with the
Host of Deutsche Bank. On November 7th, the "Ensemble VIF" will present a varied classical matinee on the banks of the Elbe. The hosts here are the ZEIT Foundation Berlin & Gerd Bucerius. The end of the day is the gorgeous saxophone quartet "sonic.art" in the conference center of Ergo Versicherungsgruppe AG.

The fascinating atmosphere of the premises and the direct contact between hosts, guests and artists make every event with “Music in the Houses of the City” a unique experience. The festival is financed exclusively from private funds, mainly from the hosts and numerous sponsors.
