Nuremberg Symphony Orchestra
Artistic quality and stylistic flexibility – these features represent the trademark of the Nuremberg Symphony Orchestra. Since its foundation in 1946 the orchestra has been active in all kinds of musical fields: opera, operetta, oratorio, film, jazz, pop and crossover and in particular the symphonic concert. No matter which genre – it makes music an adventure.
100 concerts in front of around 200,000 people are on the program each year. While the Symphonic Concerts in Nuremberg's Meistersingerhalle focus on the classical-romantic repertoire, the in-house Music Court in the Kongresshalle is dedicated to exciting genre-spanning projects from pop, jazz, film and literature. In December, the atmospheric Advent concerts with festive baroque music are a must for many visitors to Nuremberg’s Christkindlesmarkt. Another special feature: the veritable open-air summer season with concerts in the Serenadenhof or at Europe's largest classical open air in the Luitpoldhain.
