Summer Concerts

On the last Sunday of the school year, three days before the start of the summer holidays in Baden-Württemberg, the second major concert of the year takes place. Preparations for this begin after the Easter holidays. We are pleased to present the audience with new, contemporary music, as well as newly discovered music from past eras.

These pictures were taken before and during the setup rehearsal. For dramaturgical reasons, we refrained from photographing 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 with standing ovations from the audience, on YouTube!



In July 2015, composer Martin Palmeri traveled from Buenos Aires specifically 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 more about this concert in our media library.
