The Konzerthausorchester Berlin regularly inspires its audience with new concert formats, as well as with unusual + exciting projects. Along with several programmes for children in underprivileged areas of the city, there are surprise concerts, new orchestral line-ups, spontaneous request programmes, public rehearsals and scenic concerts. Most famous is the unique concert series “Right in the Middle”. In this series, the orchestral musicians separate their chairs, creating space for spectators to sit down among them. Never has an audience been able to get this close to the music before!
Today the Konzerthausorchester Berlin, with over 12,000 subscription patrons, has one of the largest subscribing audience bases of any ensemble in Germany. Since season 2019/20, Christoph Eschenbach holds the position of Chief Conductor.
In 2018, the Konzerthaus Berlin became the first concert hall in Germany to open a digital exhibition, including the augmented reality app “Konzerthaus Plus” and virtual reality glasses. The architecture + history of the concert hall, along with classical music, are communicated in an interactive, innovative and user-friendly manner. This includes a 360-degree concert experience with VR glasses – the wearer can change his or her position within the orchestra via head control – as well as the world’s first interactive string quartet in AR. The exhibition is visited by about 10,000 guests monthly, with an additional 15,000 schoolchildren arriving each season during rehearsal visits.
