Informations for organizers

Are you interested in holding a concert with us, or are you planning an event that we could enrich musically? Here you will find information for a possible collaboration.

Thanks to its decades of dedicated and groundbreaking work to make the Mannheim School known to a wider public, the Mannheim Chamber Orchestra is the contact person for organizers of performances by the Mannheim School.

The Mannheim Chamber Orchestra works closely with the Research Center for Southwest German Court Music at the Heidelberg Academy of Sciences in order to keep up to date with the latest research in musicology.
Committed to a historically sound performance practice on modern instruments, the ensemble also allows the entire repertoire for chamber orchestras to be reproduced in a high artistic quality with its enormous range from baroque to modern with the program focuses on early classical and classical music.

The Mannheim Chamber Orchestra can also score in the area of ​​instrumentation variability of the orchestra due to its high flexibility: a program with pure string members (4-4-3-2-1) is just as standard as concert programs with a wide variety of wind instruments.

Not to forget the Mannheim Chamber Orchestra is also a welcome and reliable partner in the field of church music and a competent companion for church choirs, both professional and lay. In addition, we are of course also available for all kinds of festive frames in a variety of settings.

If you are interested in a concert by the Mannheim Chamber Orchestra, please do not hesitate to contact us directly. We would be happy to tailor an offer for your event to suit your needs.
