The First Ever Munich Summer Ball by ESME e.V.: Summer Swing 2016!

Come and celebrate Summer to smooth tunes and funky beats at the first ever Munich Summer Ball! Join the fun on Saturday 9th July at the Wirtshaus Echardinger Einkehr in Berg-am-Laim. Dress up to the nines, dust off that tux, shake out the suit, take the ball-gown for a whirl or simply put on your best. Expect a fun evening of food, drink and dancing to live music played by ESME’s own Resident Alien Big Band and string quartet.

From quick step to swing, jazz to jive; from old to new; from Dean Martin to Bruno Mars. This will be THE Munich Summer event to dance the night away with your friends, so make sure you don’t miss it.

So put on your String of Pearls, drink your Coconut Champagne and get In the Mood for a Hot Hot Hot evening – and don’t forget to Save the Last Dance for Me.

Proceeds from the raffle will be donated to the charity “Musik schafft Heimat”. Initiated by the Bayerische Philharmonie, this program has been set up to help refugees who are new to the City of Munich to integrate and settle into their new home by making music together.

In a very different way, ESME has also given many of its members – who come from places as far away as Australia and Argentina, America and Russia – the chance to make new friends and feel less foreign in a strange city. The power of music to cross borders and break down barriers is overwhelming!

For more information, please visit the website of ´Musik Schafft Heimat´
