The anniversary season 2020/21

Dear friends of music,

It soon will be 75 years since an orchestra was (re)founded in a small Bavarian city that had survived the War well-nigh unscathed – an orchestra that brought together musicians from Prague and German-speaking Bohemia and thus had a tradition of more than 150 years as its birthright. We want to celebrate this, looking back gratefully on 75 years of music for the entire world – a world that we have travelled from the very beginning as cultural ambassadors of Bavaria and the whole of Germany, giving more than 7,300 concerts at 535 locations in 63 countries.
