ICMA and the Philharmonie Luxembourg present a spectacular Award Ceremony Gala on 21 April. The stupendously rich program for this Gala Celebration conducted by Lifetime Achievement Award winner Adam Fischer will feature winners of this year’s laureate panel, accompanied by the Luxembourg Philharmonic Orchestra.

Yet there will be another Orchestra on stage, the Orchestre de l’Opéra Royal de Versailles which is performing at the Gala Concert as well as at the Award Ceremony. And there will a smaller ensemble, Boreas Recorder Quartet Bremen to add more variety to the program.

With no less than six conductors, three singers and ten instrumental soloists in a program that spans from Early Music to Contemporary this is the largest and most diverse ICMA Gala Concert ever.

Tickets for the Gala Concert are on sale at https://www.philharmonie.lu/de/programm/icma-gala-concert/3586

The Award Ceremony presented by ICMA President Remy Franck will begin at 17:00 at the Chamber Music Hall and the concert will take place at the Grand Auditorium at 20:00.
