Selected Musical and Cultural Institutions

Sächsische Bläserphilharmonie (Saxon Philharmonic Wind Orchestra)

Symphonic Orchestral Music Performed Exclusively by Wind Players

Leipzig's cultural region is home to the Saxon Philharmonic Wind Orchestra, a unique treasure that is unparalleled anywhere in the German orchestral landscape. It is the only orchestra among all the German concert and theatre orchestras that performs symphonic works purely with wind players. This unique status was recognised by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media in 2017 when the ensemble was included in the funding programme "Exzellente Orchesterlandschaft Deutschland" (Excellent Orchestra Landscape Germany). The Saxon Philharmonic Wind Orchestra is in high demand both in Europe and abroad, makes guest appearances at international music festivals and has found a permanent home in Bad Lausick where it has its very own rehearsal room and concert hall.

Leipzig Symphony Orchestra

Professional orchestra in a classical symphonic formation

Leipzig Symphony Orchestra plays more than 100 concerts every year and makes an important contribution to maintaining and extending the musical landscape while significantly shaping musical life in Leipzig's cultural region, where it is the only symphony orchestra serving around 450,000 people. When talking about cultural value in connection with Leipzig Symphony Orchestra, then it would be fully legitimate to describe the ensemble as "valuable culture". Whether they are playing in the Berlin Philharmonic, the Meistersinger Hall in Nürnberg, the Alte Oper in Frankfurt, the Konzerthaus am Gendarmenmarkt or Leipzig Gewandhaus, the name of Leipzig Symphony Orchestra has long since been synonymous with outstanding musical performance.

MISKUS (Central Saxony Cultural Summer Society)

The Most Diverse Cultural Festival in Saxony

MISKUS, the Verein Mittelsächsischer Kultursommer e.V. (Central Saxony Summer Culture Society) has since 1994 been staging the most diverse festival in Saxony. It brings more than 40 cultural events to the most beautiful locations in the region where it uses the unique surroundings of old stone vaults, palaces and castles, cloisters and churches, ruins and parks as well as countryside flair to stage ingenious programmes and unusual dramatic works. "ALWAYS SOMETHING NEW" is the motto of the festival and is considered its top priority. By reenacting significant historical events, the festival brings past eras to life in all sorts of ways. This involves creating very authentic costumes as well as organising seemingly historic markets from various periods.
