The IMCF answers such inquiries, and books musicians for events – preferably its student-musicians, who gain live experience, and also can earn money.

Freiburg:

Freiburg is a charming city in Baden-Württemberg, Germany (where it is officially known by its full name, Freiburg im Breisgau). Freiburg is situated in the center of the “Breisgauer Bucht” (“Breisgau Bay”). This is an area between the Kaiserstuhl (seat of the kaiser) – an extinct volcano directly on the eastern shore of the Rhine – and the Schwarzwald (Black Forest) mountain range, which recedes here.

The popular opinion is that Freiburg is the warmest city in Germany. It straddles the Dreisam river, and was founded in the foothills of the Schlossberg. The city is surrounded by mountains Rosskopf and Bromberg in the east, and in the south and west by the Schönberg, Tuniberg and the Kaiserstuhl.

The Schwarzwaldmetrople (Black Forest metropolis) is conveniently situated along the most important freeway A5 (Hamburg – Frankfurt – Basel) in the so-called “Drei-Länder-Eck” (corner of three countries ) of Germany, Switzerland and France. The Bundesstraße 31(national road) connects Freiburg to Swabia and the Bodensee (Lake of Constance).

Freiburg is famous for its many efforts to protect and preserve natural resources and the environment. In 1992, the city was awarded the title “Umwelthauptstadt Deutschlands” (The German Capital for Environmental Protection).
