What can we do for your tomorrow today? Invest in the only thing that will never be replaceable: the human touch. Bank Julius Baer has been supporting cultural institutions and projects through its foundation, art collection and sponsorships since 1965 – the year in which the Julius Baer Foundation was established. Our commitment, however, reaches far into the future, as we believe in the strong bonds that the Elbphilharmonie will create between its audiences – both in Hamburg and on an international scale.
Music is communication. And communication is one of the driving forces of our culture. By communicating with others, we evolve – and develop new ideas. The Elbphilharmonie is a place that shows how communication can lead to new, better and greater things, an innovative place where music and communication create closeness. A place where orchestras and soloists share what is important to them. As the Elbphilharmonie's partner for digitisation, Telekom helps people share these experiences with one another, so that they can experience the uniting power of music everywhere.
On the perpetual quest for the extraordinary, two partners who embody this search in their own unique ways have now come together: Porsche and the Elbphilharmonie. Because whether it’s outstanding cultural achievements or a special interpretation of mobility – what we have in common is the mindset that leads us there. We also want to make that possible for others: that’s why Porsche is also active in cultural and youth promotion. Together with the Elbphilharmonie as a partner, Porsche is keen to discover even more of the extraordinary – and create unforgettable experiences.
Nearly 20 firms from different sectors who support selected concert and music education projects comprise the Elbphilharmonie's classic sponsors. Thanks to their generous sponsorship, we are able to regularly implement innovative project ideas that enhance the Elbphilharmonie's artistic profile and its international reputation.
The Elbphilharmonie's product sponsors place selected products in the Elbphilharmonie's catering facilities and help make the concert experience a culinary experience as well.
