How did everything start?
The idea came to life in 2016, when Judith and Frank thought about ways to support a common friend, who barely knew people he could present his music to. A couple of weeks later, the first Freilich Session took place in Judith’s living room. We gathered some of our friends and randomly invited 15 art lovers through our Facebook page. Together we enjoyed the very first concert of the band Buntspecht. It wasn’t meant to stay the only show. Supported by equally enthusiastic fellas, we’ve already set up over 100 living room experiences with more than 200 artists of various countries and art genres. Today, we are a young startup working full-time on making Freilich grow in a sustainable way.
What’s our motivation?
Our strongest motivation is the positive feedback we receive from our happy community members. They encourage us to push even harder to reach our goals. Also, half of our team are musicians themselves, so we know exactly which struggles young artists face. We strongly believe that with our vision and our concept built on collaboration, we will substantially ease the artists’ first step into their career while providing art-interested people access to inspiring experiences. We all love to experience art in a personal way, don’t we? And there is nothing better than sharing these powerful and inspiring moments with like-minded people.
