From classical music & jazz to pop & rock
The Erding chamber orchestra and symphony orchestra, for example, carry the fine art of music beyond the borders of their local region. The Stadtkapelle Erding (Erding’s town band) have committed themselves completely to Bavarian-Bohemian brass band music as well as compositions for symphonic wind instruments.
Of course the local music scene has something to offer for the young and the young-at-heart. Special concerts occasions are the Erding Jazz Days, the Sinnflut cultural spectacle and the Erding Organ Week. Current events can be found in our event calendar.
A pub festival with live concerts of all genres of music in the prettiest locations takes place in the centres of Erding and Dorfen. During the 30 minute intervals the guests have the chance to continue their personal cul-tour by moving on to the next pub and music of their choice.
