Park of Music

The Park of Music is a part of the beautiful city park, Kildeparken, in the heart of Aalborg. Since 1987, a number of artists have left their mark on the lovely park by planting a tree to commemorate their visit in Aalborg.

Sir Cliff Richard was the first artist to plant a tree in Kildeparken in 1987, when he performed in Aalborg Congress & Culture Centre. Since then, many more trees and artists have joined and, today, more than 80 great artists have left their mark on the park with oaks and wild cherry trees. 

The Singing Trees
Some of the trees are accompanied by the artists' own music and can be activated by the park's visitors by pressing af button at the foot of the tree. Some of the artists heard at the park are sir Cliff Richard, Sting, Kenny Rogers, Take That, Rod Stewart, sir Elton John, Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, Elaine Paige, Victor Borge, Bryan Adams og ZZ Top.

The music flows through the park
After the inauguration of "the Singing Trees" in Kildeparken, in the beginning of June 2012, the musical trees were activated 600.000 times during the following two years. So it has become quite popular to listen to the various medleys flowing through the park.

During Christmas, the trees all play Christmas tunes, so if you want to get into the Yuletide spirit, visit the park and press the different buttons to listen to the artists' versions of different Christmas songs. 

In June 2014, ZZ Top played a concert in Aalborg and, on that occasion, they planted a tree in the park- see more here and listen to their enthusiasm about the Singing Trees...
