On Saturday evening, ARD finally rang in the countdown to Christmas 2021 with Florian Silbereisen's "Advent Festival of 100,000 Lights". Alongside guests such as Andrea Berg, Thomas Anders, Andreas Gabalier and the Kelly Family: the pop classical orchestra Sinfoglesia. The musical ensemble of hit producer Christoph Siemons has already released two successful albums in cooperation with BurdaForward (including FOCUS Online, Bunte.de, TV Spielfilm, Chip.de). A total of 5.99 million people watched the Advent spectacle on TV. The show thus achieved a market share of 22.1 percent (source: Gesellschaft für Konsumforschung GfK).
Presenter Florian Silbereisen put the audience in the mood for the most reflective time of the year at the "Advent Festival of 100,000 Lights" with the most beautiful Advent and Christmas songs. Sinfoglesia showed in the Silbereisen show with "Was wär, wenn die Nacht wieder heilig ist" their new Christmas hit. The song comes from the new album "Der Aufbruch", a production of BurdaForward Music in cooperation with TELAMO. The song, which is accompanied by an orchestra, originated from a long-held desire of composer Christoph Siemons to write a Christmas song himself. The result is a piece that takes us through a crunching snowy landscape into a thought experiment - and sketches a better world, less marked by war and loneliness.
The chorus radiates an indescribable feeling of togetherness and ends with the words "We would all never be alone again, there could be peace in the world".
