TUM advent matinee and Vivat TUM

A passion for music unites the community of the Technical University of Munich. On 1st Advent, TUM students, alumni, staff members, donors and friends of all ages will come together for the advent concerts. The Munich Symphonic Ensemble (SEM) performs together with the TUMChor choir and different soloists, depending on the musical program. All donations collected at the advent concerts go to the endowment of the TUM University Foundation.

Next concerts: Sunday, November 28th, 2021

Due to the pandemic, the Advent concerts and the possible number of visitors are still subject to change. The venue this time is the new Isarphilharmonie of the Gasteig HP8 (Hans-Preißinger-Str.8, Munich) because of the renovation work on the old Gasteig building.

Entrance is free. All donations collected at the advent concerts go to the endowment of the TUM University Foundation.
