May 8 – 13



Dear Fans of Musikfest Eichstätt,

We are thrilled about our upcoming anniversary edition "Musikfest Eichstätt: 10 Years"! From May 8-13, 2024, the historical center of Eichstätt will once again provide the perfect baroque backdrop for high-caliber specialists from the early music scene visiting the Altmühltal.

To mark this special occasion, the festival will extend through both Ascension Day and Mother's Day, historical music enveloping the picturesque city for a full six days. As usual, the popular open-air "Court Garden Serenade" will resonate alongside concerts in the Spiegelsaal of the Residenz, the Holzersaal of the Sommerresidenz, and the Old City Theater. For this anniversary edition, the festival will also forge new paths: A musical excursion to nearby Burgsalach is on the program, as well as "Open Singing for All," led by Voces8 co-founder Paul Smith. Further, early music will be skillfully combined with the modern architecture of Karljosef Schattner, who has shaped Eichstätt's cityscape for decades through his sensitive connection of the old with the new, and who would have turned 100 in 2024. And finally, the English star ensemble Voces8 will feature in the grand finale of this year's anniversary edition.

We look forward to celebrating our tenth anniversary with you!
