On July 8 and 9, 2022, the summer concerts of the Collegium Muiscum Orchestra will take place in the church of St. Dimitrios in Aachen, Germany. More information can be found here.

This year we are especially happy to have Simon Bales, trumpet player from the theater in Aachen, as a soloist! He will play the trumpet concert with Alexander Arutjunjan with us. The first rehearsals with him have already taken place and we are very much looking forward to the concert!

Before the trumpet concerto, the orchestra will open the concert with the overture to Giuseppe Verdi's opera "Nabucco". Following the overture, the orchestra will play Stravinsky's Circus Polka. After the following trumpet concert by Alexander Arutjunjan with Simon Bales as soloist, the first symphony by Robert Schumann will be heard as the finale.
