CLIMATE PROTECTION? MUSIC TO OUR EARS.
As one of the world's most traditional orchestras with a history spanning more than 450 years, the Staatskapelle Berlin has preserved its sound culture for generations.
But we, the orchestral musicians, want to preserve not only this unique musical art for future generations, but also to preserve our planet. That's why we launched the Orchester des Wandels ("Orchestra of Change") initiative in 2009 and established the non-profit NaturTon Foundation, which promotes and supports climate and environmental protection projects worldwide.
As the original "Orchester des Wandels", we have initiated projects to play in creative and unusual locations for over ten years. For example, we were the first orchestra ever to perform in the Great Refractor on the Telegraphenberg in Potsdam, in the historic Lokhalle on the Schöneberg South Grounds, the open-air arena in the Gärten der Welt in Marzahn or the ewerk Berlin.
All proceeds from our "Climate" concerts under the patronage of Daniel Barenboim and conducted by Zubin Mehta, Patricia Kopatchinskaja, Enoch zu Guttenberg, Daniel Barenboim, Frank Strobel, Günther Albers and Thomas Guggeis have supported the environmental projects of the NaturTon Foundation.
