Principle Conductor

Dear fans and friends of the Staatskapelle,

did you know that music is a language - suitable for telling stories, exchanging and communicating, sharing thoughts and feelings? Maybe not quite as concrete and clear as words can, but some things work even better with music: conjuring up atmosphere, expressing emotions, dreaming or letting us marvel, arousing our curiosity! That's why we've put together another colourful programme for the 2019/2020 concert season, in which tones, sounds, rhythms and melodies open the door to lively musical experiences.

In the following we offer you an overview of our concert program for young and old.

If you would like to find out more about our work away from the stage, e.g. which offers we have for school classes, kindergartens or simply young people interested in music, then take a look here.
