Bad Reichenhall's Philharmonic Orchestra
Exciting concerts for enthusiastic spa audiences
The alpine town of Bad Reichenhall delights its guests with something unique in Germany: its own philharmonic orchestra. Bad Reichenhall's Philharmonic Orchestra originates from a spa chapel, which entertained noble spa audiences with exquisite afternoon concerts as far back as 1868. Today, Bad Reichenhall's Philharmonic Orchestra consists of forty highly professional musicians, offering all listeners varied and truly diverse classical music. The cast with so many academically trained instrumentalists allows the Philharmonic to play a wide repertoire, but also great symphonies.
Great classics and diverse entertainment
The orchestra plays around 350 concerts every year. In addition to classical music, the Philharmonic Orchestra delight with large Beethoven symphonies, light serenades, salon and requested concerts, but also with chamber music soirees. The orchestra can play about 500 pieces of music spontaneously, with soloists staging impressive performances at the so-called "Philharmonic Annual Concerts". Bad Reichenhall's Philharmonic Orchestra performs great pieces by Mozart, Schubert, Vivaldi, Chopin, Tchaikovsky and Mendelssohn during their annual concerts. Here they can keep up with the big orchestras, but their soloists are in no way inferior to the best in their field. The great passion of Bad Reichenhall's Philharmonic Orchestra, day-to-day business as it were, remains the spa music. Exquisite classical music has a healing effect on the body, the soul and the mind. The members of the Philharmonic Orchestra are convinced of that. They are part of the visiting card of the famous Bavarian town of Bad Reichenhall. In addition to the unique natural landscape and health-promoting natural remedies, they are synonymous with enriching spa culture and "joie de vivre".
