The Board of Trustees

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

The Chamber Orchestra Mannheim (KKO) is supported by a registered assosiation which in turn, is aided by the Society of Friends.
The Board of Trustees is the legal representative of the Chamber Orchestra Mannheim, its members being prestigious personalities from politics and society.
By concerts, radio broadcasts and CD productions the Board 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 takes all major decisions in cooperation with the orchestra's management and its artistic director.
