Concert Season 2019/2020
The Brandenburger Symphoniker was founded in 1810. As Brandenburg's oldest existing ensemble, they are one of the country's most influential cultural institutions. With their unmistakable sound, the Orchestra has delighted their audiences worldwide with a rich variety of classical, romantic and modern orchestral music. From the 2015 / 2016 concert season, Peter Gülke is the Chief Conductor of the Brandenburger Symphoniker.
The Brandenburger Symphoniker is a sought-after guest in many national and international concert halls. Guest tours have taken the orchestra, in which musicians from over ten nations currently play together, to the metropoles of Europe, Afrika, Asia and America. The Brandenburger Symphoniker has appeared regularly as a festival orchestra at the "Festival MusicaMallorca" and the opera festival "Kammeroper Schloss Rheinsberg". Both festivals are among the most renowned classical music festivals in Europe.
The Brandenburger Symphoniker is also actively involved in the performance of contemporary orchestral music as part of the "Brandenburger Biennale" composer competition.
For many years, the Brandenburger Symphoniker has been a permanent partner orchestra of the Hochschule für Musik "Hanns Eisler" and the Universität der Künste in Berlin in the training of young musicians and conductors. The Brandenburger Symphoniker also organises a wide range of music education projects with children and young people every year. For its concept for stronger cultural work in rural areas ("REACH"), the orchestra was selected by the German government in 2017 for the " Exzellente Orchesterlandschaft Deutschland " programme.
