Already several months went by since Alte Kameraden 2017. The end of the year comes closer and closer, and so the reflexion of what happend during this time. But we do not only think about the past, we also plan the edition of Alte Kameraden 2018. After 11 years in which the festival took place in almost the same way, there is now time for some changes. We are proud to announce, that we will cooperate with the Canadian association which organizes the annually World Championships for Marching and Show Bands - World Association of Marching Show Bands. Through this cooperation Alte Kameraden 2018 will become a very important place on the international festival´s map. Orchestras taking part in our festival and in the competitions of this festival are given the chance to qualify for the World Championships in Calgary/Canada 2019 and the World Championships 2020. Our festival will be the only place in Eastern Europe where this will be possible. We are proud to be pioneers. Be a part of this – at the 19th and 20th May 2018 in Gorzów Wielkopolski/Poland!
ALTE KAMERADEN for the eleventh time
Already for the eleventh time, we will have the possibility to listen and to see wonderful orchestras. This time we´ll host bands from Hungary, Lithuania, Ukraine, Czech Republic, Germany and of course from Poland.
The festival will start on May the 20th at 3.30 p.m., word for word and metaphorical with a parade from the crossroad Chrobrego/30 Stycznia to the Plac Grunwaldzki. Where will take place the official opening of the International Wind Orchestras´ Meeting ALTE KAMERADEN. At 6.00 p.m. a deligation of the orchestras will place flowers at the commemorative plaque of the composer Carl Teike – the namesake of our festival. A day later, on the 21st of May, at 2.00 p.m. there will start the concerts in the Park Wiosny Ludów (Roses´ Garden), and will finish about 7.00 p.m.
