This format is open to every art genre: music, theater, performance, reading... In a living-room-like atmosphere kolberg+stern invite and present inspiring guests from Münster and neighborhood. In their own contributions to the program, performer Anna Stern and guitarist Michael Kolberg take off on a voyage into the unknown musical terrain.

P.S.: Fresh wafers and coffee on the side!
