Festival of Culture

Festival of Culture is a musical mass event, which spreads experimental musical culture and sound art. Classical and traditional forms are represented as well as new tendencies and trends; and both – the traditional with the contemporary, the known with the unknown – are merged in innovative programmes. The festival highlights the connection of different musical genres with its concerts and diverse additional programme. An interdisciplinary approach comes to life, in which music, performance, new media and improvisation meet, merge together, and create a harmonious unit.

Music, art, culture, and lifestyle are celebrated each year with changing thematic threads and each find their own and unique place within the festival. Most importantly, the areas do not stand for themselves, but rather appear in interaction with each other. Concerts, performances, exhibitions, improvisations, shows, and panels with artistic as well as cultural aspects create the chance for artists as well as the audience to experience local, national, and international programmes and discover new and exciting facets. Additionally, the Festival of Culture invites artists, soloists, and ensembles to a musical and artistic exchange and thus especially benefits the cultural dialogue.



TIME 2022

Camerata Europæa (CE), inspired by the kaleidoscope of unique current events in the world, presents a cultural program for the year 2022 under the motto TIME. The aim of CE is to create an artistic meeting with the essence of time, the perception of time and the sense of time, which touches us all deeply and makes us think. It seems to us important in turbulent and uncertain times like the present to stimulate and encourage thoughts about life and time, as well as about the future, the present, the past, the relativity theory, by acting and reacting. Time has inspired and accompanied people for thousands of years and its perception has never been such an urgent need for the world as it is today. Time is life, love, knowledge and art. Time is utopia for realists, waste of time, redemption and fulfillment. It is in us and around us, it is everywhere and nowhere - time is timeless. World premieres of contemporary music, electronic sounds, new media, dance and performance shape the innovative program and try to expand insights and views. The CE would like to explore artistically the year 2022 with the words of Henry van Dyke’s: “Time is very slow for those who are waiting for something; very quick for those who are afraid; very long for those who complain; very short for those who celebrate; but for those who love, time is eternity ”.
