Day of Remembrance of the Victims of National Socialism
On the occasion of the national Day of Remembrance of the Victims of National Socialism on January 27, the Town of Herzogenaurach conducts an annual event.
The relevant program will be published here in advance.
Culture without borders
Each year during the summer semester, the working group "Kultur grenzenlos" ("culture without borders") at the vhs Herzogenaurach offers a cultural event series in the inner yard / the barn of the former Lang bakery. Musical, literary, regional or international contributions - the program is surely diverse.
Every year during the summer months, an open-air cinema is set up in the castle courtyard. 10 current movie highlights are presented on a large screen under the open sky. The films start daily at nightfall, approx. 9.30 pm.
Doors open 8.30 pm. An entertaining opening program helps the audience pass the waiting time until the beginning of the film.
Theater summer in the castle courtyard,
In cooperation with the association "Fränkischer Theatersommer e.V." (Franconian Theater Summer), two theater plays are presented in the castle courtyard on August 4 and 5, 2017.
The audience will be entertained with a high-class theater performance under the open sky. Culinary enjoyment is provided for as well.
hin&herzo - the cultural festival
The former “Herzogenaurach Culture Days” have now become the Cultural Festival: One weekend between summer and autumn, full of cultural enjoyments under one thrilling theme. A festival in the heart of Herzogenaurach, providing easy access and lots of sensible, but also ambiguous controversial cultural experiences.
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.
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.
