Festival Week August 8–12
@OMA, mon ami, Musikschule, Eckermann Buchhandlung (bookstore), Lichthaus Cinema etc.

The Festival Week is a compact microcosm of the four-week Yiddish Summer Weimar summer institute. In just 5 days, you can hear a different world-class concert every evening, join hands-on Mini-Workshops in instrumental and vocal music, dance, language and more, attend a workshop on intercultural peace work, and much more - just look through the program! You can go to the same workshops every day, or put together a completely different program for yourself each day. Of course, you can come for just one day, for all five days, or anything in between. You’ll meet the artists, teachers, students and volunteers of the Yiddish Summer Weimar community as well as internationally renowned guest artists and lecturers from around the world. And you can take time to see some of the many world historic sites in Weimar, Erfurt and the surrounding area. However you choose to structure your time during the Festival Week, you can look forward to a horizon-expanding, educational and entertaining experience.
