Programme

The Berliner Philharmoniker, the Konzerthausorchester Berlin and the Staatskapelle Berlin are inviting refugees, their families and helpers to a concert in the Philharmonie. With their concert, the three orchestras, their chief conductors Daniel Barenboim, Iván Fischer and Sir Simon Rattle and their intendants want to wish a warm welcome to people who have fled their homes and at the same time to thank the many full-time and volunteer helpers for their work.

Daniel Barenboim, Iván Fischer and Sir Simon Rattle: “Music is our international language which reaches and touches people everywhere. As musicians, we feel welcome all over the world. We hope that this also applies to people who are cruelly hit by fate and who are forced by war, famine or persecution, to leave their homes. With our joint concert, we want to wish refugee families welcome and express our thanks and appreciation to their helpers.”
