Lastly a guest at MUSICA VIVA in 2019, we are pleased to be able to present a second world-class acappella formation this year with the vocal ensemble amarcord. The concert will take place on Wednesday, September 18th 2024 in the Bergkirche Osnabrück.

European Union Baroque Orchestra

EUBO 2023 in Antwerp


September is getting closer – the festival program is becoming more concrete: the European Union Baroque Orchestra (also called EUBO by its fans) for the first time at the Tage Alter Musik in 1998 will be our guest for the 10th time this year on September 29th. Most of the musicians who come to Hagen in September weren’t even born back then, because the line-up of this ensemble is made up of young baroque musicians from all over the EU. Then as now, the orchestra is considered a European cultural ambassador.



Voces8 at MUSICA VIVA 2023 on 12 December in the former Hagen church


We are delighted that the British acappella ensemble Voces8 will be performing at MUSICA VIVA again this year. Tickets cannot yet be ordered, but make a note of 24 September 2024!
