Carnival – Fasching – Fun

Description Program Artists

All events for the second half of the 2020–2021 season are still planned, but cannot currently be booked. Advance ticket sales have been interrupted. The current experience with the coronavirus pandemic has shown us that in the event of strong demand (above the currently permitted 500 guests), advance sales can only be expanded once the official approval has been given to open the hall accordingly. We will continue to publish or confirm the final program six weeks before the scheduled event.

They have been around for thirty years: Blechschaden, the brass combo of the Münchner Philharmoniker. The ensemble’s repertoire ranges from classical music to pop, rock, and traditional brass music. They draw inspiration from the Bavarian Kapellmusik tradition, but their influences extend beyond the land of lederhosen and beer steins. At the Festspielhaus, the artists will be presenting buoyant carnival music – the perfect sounds for the “fifth season.”
