In 2016, the Wipperfürth music school held a competition to find a song for our city. Anyone was invited to participate by composing a song and lyrics for Wipperfürth. For support, the music school offered a free composition course. In spring, a specialist jury selected the best songs among all entries, which then took part in a song contest in June 2016. The winning song - „Für immer” (Forever) by Andreas Schnermann - was professionally arranged, produced, and published on CD and DVD. Various Wipperfürth ensembles will contribute to the production in order to showcase the diversity of the musical city of Wipperfürth. The song will be played during the festivities of the 800th city anniversary in 2017.
