Freundeskreis - Events Discover and experience music in all its facets – digitally at present, but in person again soon.

Exclusive for friends of the concert halls

Gain special insights into the work and architecture of the concert halls, meet the artists and discuss your experiences in the Freundeskreis. Our programme for members ranges from events in Hamburg and the surrounding area to visits to other German and European concert halls.

The coronavirus has restricted our lives – and also our organisation’s activities. Currently we are only offering a handful of events. This is a real shame, as exchange and shared experiences are essential components of the Freundeskreis.

You would like to take part, but are not yet a member of the Freundeskreis? You can change that here!
