The Audi Summer Concerts bring together world class musicians and up-coming talents.
The Audi Summer Concerts organized by AUDI AG is a classical music festival that takes place every year in July. In order to enrich the cultural life of the company headquarters in Ingolstadt, AUDI AG presents world-renowned stars and up-coming artists. Celebrity guests such as Sir Simon Rattle, Anne-Sophie Mutter, Edita Gruberova and Lang Lang have already given concerts at the festival. The Summer Concerts are part of the cultural commitment of AUDI AG. For three years Audi Summer Concerts cooperated with Kent Nagano, the Artistic Director of the “Advance-Festival” – a festival within the Festival. In their 27th season, the Audi Summer Concerts present once again world-class artists and ensembles. This year’s slogan of the various festival program is called “The Individual vs. the Community”. Every human is a distinctive individual whose talents and potentials fully unfold whilst acting collaboratively. Making music together equals constructing an emotional bridge. The individual championship of the soloist combined with the top performance of an ensemble form an inimitable oeuvre. The Audi Summer Concerts welcome world-class orchestras such as the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, led by its new Lithuanian music director Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla, as well as rising stars like the Audi Youth Choir Academy. The outstanding highlight of the Audi Summer Concerts is the free Classic Open Air, featuring the Audi Philharmonic Wind Orchestra and the Georgian Chamber Orchestra Ingolstadt.
