WITTENBURG, GERMANY — Mühlenchemie recently helped sponsor a cultural event that included a concert from Russian pianist Evgeni Koroliov and a visit to the FlourWorld Museum.
Koroliov gave a concert at St. Bartholomew’s church in Wittenburg, Germany, as part of the 25th Musical Festival of Mecklenburg-West Pomerania. The event is Germany’s third-largest classical music festival.
After the concert, Volkmar Wywiol, owner of Mühlenchemie and a managing director, invited the concert audience to visit the nearby FlourWorld Museum. The company’s guests were able to view the exhibition of flour sacks that demonstrates the historic and cultural significance of flour.
Mühlenchemie has made a major contribution to Wittenburg’s development as an industrial location. The production facility for the Stern-Wywiol group of companies was established in 1998 and has since established itself as a contract manufacturer for the international food market.
Pianist Koroliov, is a master pianist and winner of numerous awards. He is a professor at the Academy of Music and Performing arts in Hamburg, Germany. He performed works of Johann Sebastian Bach and Franz Schubert to a capacity crowd at the historic church.
Before and after the concert, the event was celebrated at the FlourWorld Museum with the director of the festival, the artist, and representatives of the international milling family.
“For us as an enterprise operating internationally it is both a duty and a pleasure to live out the principle of international understanding,” said Wywiol. “Culture is an important bridge towards this goal. And Evgeni Koroliov’s performance is a highlight in this context.”
