“Classical music the all over the world” is the motto of the Chamber Philharmonia Cologne. It is irrelevant to these musicians whether they are playing in a small town church, in the open air, in Cologne Cathedral or in the Sydney Opera House – their enthusiasm to play is the same every time.

Their objective is simple, they want to inspire as many people as possible across all generations to enjoy classical music. The popularity of their ensemble can be seen in the fact that the Chamber Philharmonia Cologne gives around 300 concerts a year around the globe and listeners throughout the world look forward to a musical encounter with exceptionally talented musicians.

The Chamber Philharmonia Cologne was founded in Cologne. The city is famous for its University of Music and its musical and instrumental teaching. Generations of musicians have been trained here for many decades who, in terms of their musicality, are unparalleled around the world.

The Chamber Philharmonia Cologne is at home all over the world. their tours regularly take them to New Zealand, Australia, Spain, Great Britain, Ireland and many other countries – and of course to Germany. In this context, the selection of works and soloists takes on a special significance. The multifaceted composition of the ensemble provides every member of the Chamber Philharmonia Cologne with the opportunity to perform as a soloist.

The permanently expanding repertoire of the Chamber Philharmonia Cologne consists primarily of hand-picked pieces. The real appeal of their programme lies in the combination of popular and unknown works from a wide variety of musical eras. This sees renowned musicians like Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Antonio Vivaldi in dialogue with works from people such as Sergei Prokofieff to the “King of Tango” Astor Piazzolla. This mix promises great diversity, without the need preach to the audience in the process. After all, music is for entertainment and not for instruction.
