Prélude Concerts

Music in the city,
Music for the city

Every Friday and Saturday at 6pm during the 2023 Festival in public places in the city.
Free admission

Summertime is serenade time. Wherever music was held in high esteem, instrumental ensembles of the most diverse instrumentations, strings, wind instruments, mixed groups, but also choirs were drawn out into the open air to delight themselves and their mostly casual listeners with playing and singing. The Kissinger Sommer comes back to this beautiful practice and thus carries the musical pleasure of the festival season into the city as well. During the festival weeks, different groups gave an open air concert of about half an hour every Friday and Saturday evening at 6 pm.

Artists from guest orchestras such as the Orchestra Sinfonica di Milano, the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra and the Munich Radio Orchestra will perform in some of the summer concerts. In others, groups from Bad Kissingen will perform, the gospel choir "Die KisSingers" and the youth choir Herz-Jesu, for example, and ensembles from the local music school. "La Dolce Vita" is also the motto here: formations from Bad Kissingen's twin town Massa and from Montecatini Terme will enrich this special series. One can experience the Prélude concerts - free of charge, of course - as a prelude to the evening's weekend pleasure, as a taster offer that arouses curiosity for more, or as an hors d'œuvre for an evening concert in the Max Littmann Hall. They invite you to linger with them or stroll to their sounds - just as the mood takes you.
