Cultural events

Throughout the year, there are not only the traditional markets and festivals, but the town is also known for its diverse cultural offers. Besides the established events like the open-air cinema or the Herzogenaurach theater summer, there are also individual events emphasizing particular topics to prove the diversity of the cultural landscape in Herzogenaurach.

Herzogenaurach chamber orchestra

The Herzogenaurach chamber orchestra was founded in 2012 by 16 dedicated instrumentalists. With this, the long time dream of interested laymen and professionals in Herzogenaurach coming together as a string ensemble and acquiring a repertoire of baroque, classic and modern orchestra pieces came true.

The byname "concertino ducale" (loosely translated: "little ducal orchestra") on the one side alludes to the name Herzogenaurach since "ducal" is "herzoglich" in German, and on the other side emphasizes the intent to adjust the orchestra lineup to the requirements of chamber music.

Since its foundation, the string orchestra has been conducted by Dr. Gerald Fink who has been awarded several prizes as concert organist, choir leader, composer and musicologist by now.

 

 

Festive Concert

Each year on the third Sunday of Advent, the "Festliche Konzert" (Festive Concert) takes place, presenting exclusively choirs, ensembles, musicians and students from Herzogenaurach.

Next concert: December 16, 2018 at 6.30 p.m.

Culture Award and Cultural Advancement Award

The Town of Herzogenaurach has donated and awarded a Culture Award as well as a Cultural Advancement Award in irregular intervals.
