Staatsorchester Rheinische Philharmonie Musicians

With a history spanning more than 350 years, the Staatsorchester Rheinische Philharmonie is the philharmonic figurehead of the city of Koblenz and the entire region. Founded in 1654 as the prince-bishop's court orchestra, the orchestra has been sponsored by the state of Rhineland-Palatinate since 1973. Together, the musicians of the Rheinische Philharmonie prove again and again that a classical symphony orchestra can stand for exciting program concepts and thrilling concerts. This makes the orchestra an important part of cultural and social life in the entire region.

Climate protection and sustainability have long been topics of concern for the members of the Rheinische Philharmonie State Orchestra. Around half of the orchestra’s musicians regularly come to work by bike, on foot or public transportation. Employees in orchestra management have switched to making copies on recycled paper, duty rosters are only sent digitally and recently the lighting in rehearsal and concert spaces have been switched to LEDs where possible.

The orchestra recently showed their social commitment at a benefit concert planned and carried out by the musicians in support of the victims of the 2021 flooding in the Eifel region.

The decision to join the "Orchester des Wandels" was made with a large majority. Artistic Director Günter Müller-Rogalla is also receptive to the agenda and the orchestra musicians are happy to bring into their everyday work the topics of ​​sustainability and climate protection.
