Staatsorchester Kassel Musicians

The Staatsorchester Kassel (State Orchestra of Kassel) is the oldest continuously existing orchestra in Germany, originating from the court orchestra of the Prince of Hesse, first mentioned in 1502. For centuries it has been shaped through Hessian history and continues to be a mirror of its time.

In this respect, it is only logical that in the city of Kassel, which has committed itself to be climate neutral by 2030, we take up the issue of climate justice and try to do our part by joining Orchester des Wandels. We are happy to be part of this initiative!
