        Testimonials

        „The Bridges Kammerorchester is the orchestra of our time. In the orchestra as well as in the ensembles, in education and community formats, the wonderful diversity of music can be experienced. The Bridges Kammerorchester makes clear what is possible in a post-migrant society: a new whole that is more than the sum of its parts. This makes the beauty of diversity audible.“

        „The Bridges Kammerorchester engages with our society and seeks musical dialog. Playing together in different time signatures creates friction. Contemporary music that connects – with a lot of feeling.“

        Hadija Haruna-Oelker, journalist/author

        „The Bridges Kammerorchester is a great ambassador for our region. It not only brings together outstanding musicians, but also combines musical influences from all over the world to create a unique blend. Diversity enriches and inspires. The ensemble conveys this through music. Bridges could not be better suited to our times and our colorful region. I’m already looking forward to the next concert.“
