Berliner Philharmoniker

Friends of the
Berliner Philharmoniker e.V.

When you become a Friend of the Berliner Philharmoniker, it opens up many possibilities for you: that’s not just because you are supporting the orchestra financially and sponsoring many projects through your membership.

You will meet like-minded people, connected by your love and passion for classical music. You will be part of a community whose life is enriched by the music of the Berliner Philharmoniker.

Why don’t you become a member as well? – as a Friend, Supporter or Patron! You decide whether you want to become a “Friend” (at least € 100 annual contribution), a “Supporter” (at least € 1,000 a year) or a “Patron” (at least € 5,000 a year). All membership dues are tax-deductible.


  • Three special events per season (usually with members of the Berliner Philharmoniker)
  • Invitation to one dress rehearsal per season
  • Preferential treatment for ticket reservations for specially arranged concerts (subject to availability)

Members may determine themselves how much they pay as an annual membership fee (at least € 100 per year). Like all donations, this fee is tax deductible.
