Enjoying music in a unique ambience
Annual meeting of top musicians at the Kissinger summer event
Every year from mid-June to mid-July, the venerable spa town of Bad Kissingen becomes the focal point of the European music business. Then, internationally renowned artists meet there for the Kissinger summer event "Kissinger Sommer". Since its start in 1986, the music festival has become a permanent event in the festival calendar. Classic stars with big names are permanent guests here - from Cecilia Bartoli to Lang Lang to David Garrett. They appreciate the exquisite ambience of the spa town at least as much as the ever-enthusiastic audience. With the German Chamber Philharmonic Orchestra of Bremen under its principal conductor Paavo Järvi, the "Kissinger Sommer" even has its own festival orchestra, which impresses with elaborate annual concerts.
