New Start on 28 August

Concert highlights, ticket sales, hygiene rules

Finally concerts in the Philharmonie Berlin again! We are very much looking forward to opening the 2020/21 season with you, our audience, with exciting concert programmes and outstanding musicians. Some things will be different than before: in order to meet the requirements of the Berlin Senate’s guidelines for containing the corona pandemic, we have had to shorten most of the originally planned programmes as we are only allowed to present our concerts without a break until further notice. Some works for larger forces have had to be replaced so that the musicians on the concert platform can observe the distancing rules.

Shorter programmes, fewer musicians

Distancing rules also apply to our visitors, which is why only about 20 to 25% of the usual seating capacity is available. As a result, we have also added some extra performances with the Berliner Philharmoniker in order to enable as many people as possible to attend the concert after a break of so many months. We have also moved some events from the Chamber Music Hall to the main auditorium.

Limited seating

The changes will initially affect the concerts from August to October. These are now available for sale. In which form and under what conditions the concerts in November and December will be held will be announced at a later date. Due to the restrictions mentioned above, we are unfortunately unable to fulfil the orchestral subscriptions in September and October and have to suspend them.

What’s next?

On our website you will find all information about our re-opening: We present the concert highlights of the coming weeks, and inform you about ticket sales and distancing and hygiene rules during your concert visit. Please also note that there will be no lunch concerts and no introductory events to the concerts until the end of October.
