Cologne Orchestra

Friday 26th January 7pm for 8pm start at St John's Uniting Church

After several successful european tours the Chamber Philharmonia Cologne is coming back to Australia and New Zealand in Summer 2018 with a lovely and powerful new programme

“Classical music the world over” – this is the motto of the Chamber Philharmonia Cologne. It is irrelevant for our musicians whether they are playing in a little
village Church, in the open air, in Cologne Cathedral or in the
Sydney Opera House – their enthusiasm to play music is always the same.

The objective is simple – we want to inspire as many people as possible across
all generations to enjoy classical music. The popularity of our ensemble is
reflected 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 our exceptionally talented musicians

The Chamber Philharmonia Cologne was founded in the city whose name they bear: Cologne. The city that is famous throughout the world for its University of Music and its musical and instrumental teaching. Generations of musicians have been trained here who, in terms of their musicality, are unparalleled around the world. Taking advantage of this pool of talent, a team of outstanding musicians has developed that in a changing cast of musicians take our motto across the world.

The Chamber Philharmonia Cologne is at home all over the world. Our tours regularly take us 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 ever expanding repertoire of the Chamber Philharmonia Cologne consists primarily of hand-picked pieces. The real appeal of our programme lies in the meeting of popular and lesser known works from a wide variety of musical epochs. This sees familiar greats like Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Antonio Vivaldi in dialogue with works from people such as Sergei Prokofieff through to the “King of Tango” Astor Piazzolla. This mix promises great diversity of the highest order, without us having to preach to the audience in the process. After all, music is for entertainment and not for instruction.

 To inspire people across the world to enjoy classical music – that’s what we view as our maxim!
    Quite simply: Classical music the world over!
