Our ensembles in the COVID-19 period

The corona pandemic has almost paralyzed the international concert life. It is not yet foreseeable when concert halls will open again, when festivals will take place again and when the canceled concerts will be made up for. In addition to the audience, the organizers, agencies, orchestras, ensembles and every single artist and employee are directly affected. Nevertheless, we all continue to work so that people can enjoy music in front of, behind and on stage. Many artists are currently offering their repertoire online or are working to do so very soon. Here we offer a small overview of the activities of our ensembles and special projects:

The majority of our orchestras and ensembles belong to the independent scene and either receive little or no public funding. As a rule, the musicians are self-employed or even bear part of the responsibility for the overall structure as partners. Due to the worldwide concert cancellations, many of them are threatened in their existence and ask for support. We are happy to do this and collect the relevant links here:
