30 Musicians. No conductor.
c/o chamber orchestra was founded in 2014: an orchestra of thirty young musicians from around Europe who want to dedicate themselves to a deeper form of music-making, to intense collaboration. Without a conductor, without fixed hierarchies. The most important idea is listening, supporting each other and taking responsibility. Together, these musicians bring their audiences the music: fresh and full of immediacy.
Collaborations with soloists such as Nils Landgren, Alban Gerhardt and Gergana Gergova, as well as Cornelia Gartemann and Francisco López Martín have brought c/o in the past years to Germany, Denmark, Sweden and Spain, including to the Konzerthaus in Berlin and the Tivoli Concert Hall in Copenhagen. Committed to bringing new music to life, c/o has commissioned works from Francisco López Martín and Michael Ippolito.
In January 2018 the orchestra will return to Berlin and Hamburg - check back soon for updates on our 5th anniversary season!
