The Audience Orchestra is perfect for those who already have experience playing in an orchestra. Around 90 dedicated amateur musicians rehearse at a high level with the orchestra in the Kaispeicher every week. Then, twice each season, they take their instruments up to the Grand Hall for a public concert, and give other performances in Hamburg city districts. Their recent concerts featured performances of Hector Berlioz’s Symphonie fantastique as well as film music and more unusual works.
