Information for organizers

Are you interested in organizing a concert or do you want to plan an event that could be enriched by classical music? Here you will find information on how to cooperate with us.

For decades of dedicated as well as pioneering efforts to make the Mannheim School known again to a wider public, the Chamber Orchestra Mannheim has been the adequate partner for organizers who want to perform compositions of the Mannheim School.
In order to stay up to date on the level of musicological research, the Chamber Orchestra Mannheim cooperates closely with the research department of the Heidelberg Academy for Sciences and Humanities.
Faithful to playing on modern instruments in a historical style, the ensemble is able to perform the whole repertoire of chamber music with high artistic quality, ranging from Baroque to modern compositions, but focussing mainly on the preclassical and classical periods.
The Chamber Orchestra Mannheim also scores by the orchestra's great casting flexibility: a programme with string instruments only in the core arrangement of 4-4-3-2-1 is just as normal as a concert programme including diverse wind instruments.
In addition, the Chamber Orchestra Mannheim is also a welcome and reliable partner for church music, competently accompanying both professional as well as amateur church choirs. Moreover, the orchestra is also available in diverse arrangements if you want to frame festivities or other events.
If you are interested in including a concert with the Chamber Orchestra Mannheim, please do not hesitate to contact us directly. We would be glad to make you an individual offer for your event according to your wishes.
