Since September 2021, the Berliner Philharmoniker and its chief conductor Kirill Petrenko have been ambassadors for UN refugee aid. This makes them the first organisation to receive this status. To kick off the partnership, Kirill Petrenko conducted the orchestra in a family concert presented by him with the ballet music The Firebird by Igor Stravinsky.
This concert and other activities have already raised 22,977 euros in donations. Further fundraising and benefit campaigns are planned. For example, at the Carte blanche concerts of the Karajan Academy of the Berlin Philharmonic, there will be an opportunity to donate to UNO Flüchtlingswerk.
