Events in Merano
The Merano Music Weeks
From 2016.08.23 to 2016.09.22The Merano Music Weeks were inaugurated in 1986 in conjunction with the 150 year celebrations of the thermal city.
It was an immediate success and drew a large audience.
From the beginning, the organisers of the Merano Music Weeks strived to offer a spectacle of the highest level, which is backed up by those who were engaged during the second edition, the 12 violinists of Berlin's Philharmonic orchestra, the Emerson String Quartet and the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra from New York. These groups usually only perform on the stages of the theatres in the largest cities in the world.
In 1989 the Kursaal was restored and in the subsequent years played host to the City of Birmingham Orchestra,
the Russian National Orchestra and Israel's Philharmonic Orchestra.
During the Merano Music Weeks you won't only listen to classical music, there are also surprises from jazz and orchestra interprets who perform on the minor circuits of the festival such as the classical matinee, the colours of music and the nocturnal concert.
