Freundeskreis - Become a Curator True Hamburg citizenship: become a Curator and create unique possibilities with your engagement.

Creating Extraordinary Potential

250 Curators support the Freundeskreis in a very special way. Their substantial contribution makes extraordinary things possible. Following a long tradition of civic engagement, Curators create important financial flexibility that directly benefits the concert programmes of both halls. It’s worth it for Hamburg – and for us all.

»The Elbphilharmonie and Laeiszhalle are the pearls of Hamburg. As a citizen of this city, I don’t just want to visit them myself – I also have a responsibility for them. As a Curator in the Freundeskreis, I support these venues. And I also encourage my friends to become Curators.«

M. Alwart, Curator since 2015
