Summer Concerts

On the last Sunday of the school year, three days before the start of the summer holidays in Baden-Württemberg, the second big concert of the year will take place. After the Easter holidays the preparations for this will begin. We are happy to bring new, contemporary music to the audience here, but also newly discovered music from past eras.

These pictures were taken before and during the rehearsal. For dramaturgical reasons we refrained from taking pictures during the concert. The concert was recorded in sound and image with simple technical means. Please watch the videos of this concert, which was celebrated by the audience with standing ovations, on YouTube!



The composer Martin Palmeri travelled from Buenos Aires in July 2015 especially for the first Stuttgart performance of his “Magnificat”. Thanks to his uncomplicated manner, the concert could already be realized at this time. Thank you, dear Martin! You can find out more about this concert in our media library.
