Berliner Philharmoniker Circle

The Berliner Philharmoniker Circle is in the process of being launched and is aimed at an exclusive international group of highly dedicated supporters of the orchestra. It reflects the pioneering spirit that has characterized the Philharmoniker since their founding in 1882. The Berliner Philharmoniker Circle supports the orchestra in a variety of ways, above all, by affirming the Philharmonikers’ commitment to the highest musical quality combined with innovation and social relevance. The Berliner Philharmoniker wants to play a pioneering role in this context in the future. To this end, the Berliner Philharmoniker Circle also provides financing for lighthouse projects, from cost-intensive productions to concerts in special locations, with the goal of transcending boundaries and opening up surprising new perspectives.

The Berliner Philharmoniker Circle is an international group in which both private and corporate sponsors come together; there is also an American Circle for supporters from the US. Under the supervision of the general manager of the Berliner Philharmoniker and members of the orchestra board, the Berliner Philharmoniker Circle offers its members access to events and social gatherings with members of the Berliner Philharmoniker, including private house concerts, as well as to the events of the Friends of the Berliner Philharmoniker.

Join us as a member of the Berliner Philharmoniker Circle and experience the Berliner Philharmoniker at close range.
