Idea

It all began in the castle barn.

In 1993, the festival founders’ passion for music and their pioneering spirit led them to the endeavor to culturally revitalise a region. Much has changed since then, but the main concept of the SummerMusicAcademy Hundisburg Castle remains. Every year, the castle and its surroundings reverberate to the sound of music. The SummerMusicAcademy presents a diverse musical program of excellent quality: groovy Jazz, exceptional Chamber Music and a spirited classical/romantic repertoire. The various venues in and around Hundisburg Castle create a unique and unmistakable atmosphere for the SummerMusicAcademy.

Music connects people from around the world right in the heart of Germany.

For ten days in July and August, the entire region surrounding the baroque castle becomes a meeting place for young musicians from around the globe. In this short period of time, these individuals come together to form a single musical entity – the SummerMusicAcademy Orchestra. The audience witnesses this process in a series of unique concerts, such as the Candlelight Concert, the Lecture Concert, the Walking Concert, and the Final Concert in the Castle Barn, all of which reflect the orchestra’s and conductor’s passion and joy of music.

The SummerMusicAcademy Hundisburg Castle captivates, inspires and enthrals.
