Since 1995 the Association for Town Marketing of Wetter ("Stadtmarketing für Wetter e.V.") works for the presentation of the location Wetter and the systematic prestige advertising as well as for improving the attractiveness of the town of Wetter (Ruhr) for citizens of Wetter (Ruhr), citizens of the surrounding area as well as resident and interested companies. The association wants to contribute by ideological, material and / or financial support for appropriate events in cultural, sporting, economic, social and / or environmental fields. The association can also achieve these purposes by implementing appropriate procedures (eg. planning and guidance documents, publications and related services).



A listening pleasure of a special kind

For the 21st time, the traditional New Year's Concert took place on Sunday (see news of October 17, 2017). The interest in this event was enormous: Almost all of the 499 available seats were taken, which meant an increase from the previous year again – and rightly so. After a good two and a half hours of varied and intoxicating music, the enthusiastic audience bid farewell to the young artists with standing ovations. The outstanding moderation by the conductor Timor Oliver Chadik and the spokeswoman Sylvia Systermans contributed to this.

Another thanks goes to this year's sponsors of the concert

and the team of the Bakery & Confectionery Homann around David Reisberg, who took care of the concert visitors in the approximately 20-minute break with sweet and savory pastries and hot and cold drinks.

"The orchestra likes the pleasant, almost familiar atmosphere in the auditorium; they like to play in Wetter (Ruhr), because they feel very comfortable here", says Anna Schlippe, project manager of the JBP NRW. 70 orchestra members have been on stage this year.
