The jury of the Graphic Club Stuttgart honored photographer MONICA MENEZ with the 'Award of Excellence' for the "Season 2018/19 Concert Calendar" at the renowned GREGOR CALENDAR AWARDS 2018. "Awards of Excellence are given for especially good performances." is the credo of the internationally oriented awards.
Themed upon "Berlin Hears Red", individual orchestral members and still lifes were lovingly and unforgettably staged for the project in cooperation with Preuss & Preuss, multiple award-winning BFF photographer Monica Menez and Principal Conductor Robin Ticciati. The calendar is part of a large-scale marketing campaign for Deutsche Symphonie Orchester Berlin and a prime example of an outstanding cultural concept. Deutsche Symphonie Orchester Berlin is one of the largest orchestras in the German capital and belongs to Rundfunk-Orchester und -Chöre GmbH, which was founded in 1994. Its venue is the Berlin Philharmonic. Robin Ticciati has been Principal Conductor and Artistic Director of the orchestra since the 2017/18 season, and the Englishman of Italian heritage signed a five-year contract at a press conference on 12 November, 2016. dso-berlin.de
