About Philippsburg

 Philippsburg is a town on the Rhine in Baden-Württemberg, home to ca. 13000 inhabitants. It is situated between the cities of Mannheim, Ludwigshafen, Speyer, Heidelberg and Karlsruhe.

During the 17th and 18th century, Philippsburg as the prince-bishop of Speyer’s fortress was of outstanding military significance in many battles between France and the German Reich. A marketplace in the centre of town and a historical sightseeing walk with 17 stations remind of the past.

The Festungs- und Waffengeschichtliches Museum (museum of the fortress and historical weaponry), the Heimatuseum (museum of local history) and the memorial “pax aeterna” by the artist Giacomo Manzu are all worth a visit, when staying in Philippsburg.

A special gem is the Jugendstil (art nouveau) festival hall that is situated directly by the school of music and arts.

With its gastronomical variety, many shops, medical offices a train station and a direct connection to the motorway, the town has good infrastructure.

On sunny days, one can discover rare animals and plants when strolling or biking through the abundant nature and many wildlife reserves surrounding Philippsburg.

Plenty of clubs offer recreational activities in various areas of sports and culture. Alongside several lakes, an indoor- and an outdoor swimming pool invite to a swim on a hot summer day.

Additionally, the castles of Heidelberg, Karlsruhe and Mannheim, the castle garden in Schwetzingen and cathedral of Speyer (UNESCO World Heritage Site) are in close proximity for a lovely day trip.

Testimonials of participants of the 1st Philippsburg Chamber Orchestra Academy:

"Viele wunderbare Menschen zwischen welchen sich eine einzigartige Gruppenchemie gebildet hat. Freundschaften mit Leuten von denen man früher noch nie gehört hat sind entstanden. Dazu durfte man auch wunderbare Musik mit diesen Leuten spielen!"

The 1st Chamber Orchestra Academie was a great and formative experience. It was very well organized and gave us the chance to learn a lot with great musicians and composers and have fun at the same time. I definitely recommend it and would do it again!

Die Philippsburger Kammerorchesterakademie ist ein superschönes Erlebnis für jeden der gerne im Orchester musiziert. Man lernt neue Menschen kennen, die die gleichen Interessen vertreten und teilweise sogar aus andern Ländern kommen. Besonders die gemeinsame Arbeit im Orchester ist eine schöne Erfahrung, besonders bei den großartigen Werken, die wir erarbeitet haben. Ebenso lehrreich und bereichernd war die Zusammenarbeit mit unserem Dirigenten Adam Szmidt, der uns sowohl auf persönlicher als auch auf musikalischer Ebene viel vermittelte. Eine unvergessliche Zeit die meinen musikalischen Weg sehr geprägt hat!

La academia 2021 para mí fué súper ., Hice Buenos amigos, jugué repertorio nuevo y súper y conocí hermosos lugares de Alemania ...

Die 1. internationale Philippsburger Kammerorchester-Akademie war ein Projekt, das nicht erst in den Kinderschuhen steckte, sondern in allen Bereichen professionell organisiert war und reibungslos ablief. Musikalisch fand das Ganze auf einem sehr hohen Niveau statt, mit extrem talentierten und hochmotivierten Nachwuchsmusikern, die entweder kurz vor oder am Beginn ihres Musikstudiums standen. Dank dieser konzentrierten und motivierten Arbeitsatmosphäre konnte das rhythmisch und technisch anspruchsvolle Programm gestemmt und in drei Konzerten mit gleichbleibend hoher Qualität

aufgeführt werden. Auch für die Zukunft sowohl für potenzielle Bewerber als auch für Konzertbesucher der Abschlusskonzerte eine ganz klare Teilnahme-Empfehlung!
