The Support Assosiation (Trägerverein) of the KKO

"Tradition means the passing on of the fire and not the adoration of its ashes." (Gustav Mahler)

The KKO (Chamber Orchestra Mannheim) is supported by a registered assosiation and is aided by the Society of Friends for the Promotion of the KKO.
The Support Association is its legal entity, its members being highly respected personalities from politics and society.
By concerts, radio broadcasts and CD productions the Support Association aims at the promotion of music of the Mannheim School in particular in order to make it known to the general public. The Executive Board of the Support Association takes all major decisions in cooperation with the orchestra's management and its artistic director.
