Final Concerts

Standing ovations at the first of the three final concerts! The International Academy Orchestra and soloist Christoph Eß, conducted by Johannes Klumpp, played in a sold-out barn and were rewarded by thunderous applause. Schubert, Strauß, Nicolai and Brahms have never sounded so beautiful!

The exceptional Concert

Techno played on flutes, a violin, a viola, a cello and a piano?! Hell yeah! With their current program »On the Dancefloor« Spark – the classical Band blew the roof off the Andreaskirche in Hundisburg.

Walking Concert

The Walking Concert took people not only on a walk through the history of traditional brick making but also through the history of music. The chamber music ensembles formed by members of this year's International Academy Orchestra clearly enjoyed playing next to the old bucket-chain dredger, inside the kiln or in the field train.
