Munich Symphony Orchestra - The sound of our city

The logo of the Munich Symphony Orchestra shows a golden angel on the banks of the River Isar whose wing tips point skywards, keeping vigil over the Bavarian state capital. Strongly committed to Munich and its music traditions, the Munich Symphony Orchestra is one of the city's four symphony orchestras. The Orchestra takes as its motto and as its remit the maxim "The Sound of our City"; with its four subscription concert series in Munich's grand venues it is well-established as one of the city's most renowned ensembles, and when on tour, it takes that "Sound of our City" far and wide beyond the city limits. 

Classical-Romantic orchestral repertoire is at the heart of the MSO's mission to uphold musical traditions while offering new listening experiences. Famous soloists and talented newcomers in the classical field are always happy to make guest appearances with the orchestra. Experienced conductors and those just starting out on a career can regularly be seen on the rostrum directing the orchestra. Since the 2014/2015 season Bielefeld-born Kevin John Edusei has been the MSO's Principal Conductor. He is complemented from time to time by the young German-American Ken-David Masur as Principal Guest Conductor, while the orchestra enjoys an artistic bond with Philippe Entremont, its Honorary Conductor.

In addition to the classical repertoire, the Munich Symphony Orchestra also excels in top-flight productions in the fields of opera, film and show music. The programme comprises around 110 concerts per year, offering audiences a wide repertoire in which the orchestra's extrovert style of music-making is on show: lovers of film soundtracks have enjoyed live performances of the music to "The Lord of the Rings" and Disney's "Fantasia” and opera lovers flock to the Opera Festival at the Gut Immling estate to enjoy the Munich Symphony Orchestra's playing.
