A traditional ensemble
The orchestra, whose name is well-known all over the world, has a long tradition in Bonn.
Today’s orchestra of the Beethoven Hall was founded in Koblenz in 1897 and was taken over by the city of Bonn ten years later. With the construction of the Beethoven Hall in 1963, the ensemble got its actual name. Many meaningful composers and conductors can be found in the orchestra’s history, which is more than 100-years-old, such as Max Reger, Karl Böhm and Sergiu Celibidache. Stefan Blunier is nowadays General Musical Director of the Beethoven Orchestra Bonn.
The orchestra of the Beethoven Hall is one of the leading German orchestras and makes an important contribution to the city’s cultural life with its concerts in the Beethoven Hall and the opera of Bonn.
