After several successful European tours in 2017 and 2018 the Chamber Philharmonia Cologne (Germany) is coming back to Australia in summer 2019 with a powerful and lovely new programme. This includes two exclusive performances being held in Kuranda, at St. Saviour’s Church, on Saturday and Sunday 6-7 July at 2.30pm.
Tickets for the Kuranda performances are available at the Kuranda Information Centre (cash sales only) or at the door, one hour prior to the concerts. For more information on the Kuranda shows, please download their flyer.
“Classical music the world over” – this is the motto of the Chamber Philharmonia Cologne. It is irrelevant for our musicians whether they are playing in a little village church, in the open air, in Cologne Cathedral or in the Sydney Opera House – their enthusiasm to play music is the same every time.
The objective is simple – we want to inspire as many people as possible across all generations to enjoy classical music. The popularity of our ensemble is reflected in the fact that the Chamber Philharmonia Cologne gives around 300 concerts a year around the globe and listeners throughout the world look forward to a musical encounter with our exceptionally talented musicians.
The permanently expanding repertoire of the Chamber Philharmonia Cologne consists primarily of hand-picked pieces. The real appeal of our programme lies in the meeting of popular and unknown works from a wide variety of musical epochs. This sees familiar greats like Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Antonio Vivaldi in dialogue with works from people such as Sergei Prokofieff through to the “King of Tango” Astor Piazzolla. This mix promises great diversity of the very highest order, without us having to preach to the audience in the process. After all, music is for entertainment and not for instruction.
To inspire people across the world to enjoy classical music – that’s what we view as our maxim!
