29th SummerMusicAcademy 2021

In a spirit of confidence and cautious optimism, the 29th SummerMusicAcademy will take place from 24th of July to 8th of August 2021. Look forward with us to brighter times – to a summer full of excellent symphonic and chamber music, a top-class academy orchestra as well as a master class.


This year's programme promises excellence and the highest musical pleasure, but at the same time must remain realisable and sensible. Current circumstances require a high degree of flexibility, which is why we will keep you informed here of all the latest developments in the planning of the festival. Be excited, stay curious and healthy!

The SMA-Weekend 2020

From 4th to 6th September 2020, music was in the air in and around Hundisburg Castle. Hardly anyone had dared to hope for a SummerMusicAcademy in 2020 after the original festival in July had to be cancelled due to the Corona pandemic.


But thanks to the solidarity of many sponsors, supporters and also the audience, a concentrated form of the SMA became possible, at unusually short notice and under special conditions - and yet with a familiar fine, colourful and demanding programme.
