Musica Sacra International 2024 –
A Music Festival of Religions
The Musica Sacra International festival will present high-quality music from the world's major religions and other cultures over Whitsun in Marktoberdorf. The encounter festival would like to make an important contribution through music, especially in today's world, to getting to know and understanding other cultures and religions. The audience will experience extraordinary musical contributions, diversity, community and tolerance.
The motto of the 2024 festival is "Times of Anxiety, Times of Trust. Zeit der Angst, Zeit des Vertrauens."
From May 17 to 21, 2024, eight ensembles from different countries and different religions are invited. On Friday evening, the festival will begin with a common opening concert in the Bavarian Music Academy Marktoberdorf. The ensembles will perform together in parallel concerts throughout the Allgäu region from Saturday to Monday evening.
In addition to the concerts, visitors can also get to know the ensembles in so-called ateliers held in the mornings, where the musicians will share something about their religion, culture and music. In the evenings, all guests come together in Café Musica. There will also be lectures, church services and a panel discussion. Guests who not only want to be there as visitors but also become part of the festival can sing with one of the participating ensembles in the festival choir, rehearse together, prepare pieces and then present them in the final concert on Tuesday evening.
Since 2018 the Federal German Music Association of Choirs & Orchestras has been the festival’s ideational supporter.
