Musicians representing five diverse cultures perform a concert in the new chapel of the Church of Scientology of Hamburg

The Church of Scientology Hamburg hosted a Concert for Diversity in their new chapel March 9, featuring artists from five different nations.

The eclectic mix of genre and style spanned the cultural landscape from Iran to Nigeria, New Zealand, the Netherlands and Germany. Each of the seven groups or artists brought to the audience their unique sound and expression, and the finale where they performed together capped the evening.

The theme of the event was the role of the artist in bridging cultural differences and bringing about a better world, as expressed by Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard: “A culture is only as great as its dreams, and its dreams are dreamed by artists.”

The Church of Scientology of Hamburg newly opened its doors in a dedication ceremony on January 21, 2012, attended by 1,500 Scientologists, guests and dignitaries. The grand opening marked the culmination of the transformation of the seven-story Church into an Ideal Church of Scientology to better meet the needs of Hamburg’s growing Scientology congregation and the community at large. The renovation and grand opening was part of a program to open Ideal Scientology Organizations around the world to fulfill L. Ron Hubbard’s vision for the religion. They are designed to provide all Scientology religious services to their parishioners and to serve as a home for the entire community and a meeting ground of cooperative efforts to uplift citizens of all denominations.
