Philharmonisches Orchester Heidelberg

Heidelberg’s philharmonic orchestra, Philharmonisches Orchester Heidelberg, has been part of the city’s theatre since 2005. It forms its own category, staging numerous concerts and accompanying opera productions.

The orchestra shapes the city’s musical life with its stylistic flexibility stretching from Baroque to Modernity as well as a broad variety of concert formats. It has twice been honoured with the award for »best concert programme« by the association of German music producers, Deutscher Musikverleger-Verband, and places a strong emphasis on educational programme. Since 2006, Heidelberg’s philharmonic orchestra has been engaging with historic staging methods as part of the festival Winter in Schwetzingen. As part of Heidelberg’s women artists’ award, the Heidelberger Künstlerinnenpreis, and its concert programmes, the orchestra regularly reflects on the works of women composers.

The Philharmonisches Orchester Heidelberg was founded on 8th April 1889 as »Städtisches Orchester«.

City of Heidelberg Music Prize for female composers

The Heidelberger Künstlerinnenpreis is one of the state's most important cultural prizes and the only award in the world to be given exclusively to female composers.

The Heidelberger Künstlerinnenpreis celebrated its thirtieth anniversary in 2017. It was initiated by Roswitha Sperber in 1987, and since 2007 the prize has been awarded as a municipal music prize by the City of Heidelberg and celebrated by the Theater und Orchester Heidelberg, which performs one orchestral work by each prize winner as part of one of their Philharmonic Concerts. Deutschlandfunk, the long-time media partner, records the Preisträgerinnen-Konzert and transmits it throughout Germany at different times together with a feature on the prized composer.

Orchesterakademie Rhein-Neckar

The Orchesterakademie Rhein-Neckar (Orchestra Academy Rhine-Neckar, OARN) is a joint project of the Mannheim State University of Music and Performing Arts with the Kurpfälzisches Kammerorchester, the Nationaltheater Mannheim, the Deutsche Staatsphilharmonie Rheinland-Pfalz Ludwigshafen and the Theater und Orchester Heidelberg.

The aim of the Orchesterakademie is to promote young professional artists in the field of orchestral instruments and to facilitate the transition from study to work.

The academy students are selected in a joint entrance examination between the university and the four orchestras. They are enrolled in the »Supplementary Studies Orchestra Academy« at the Musikhochschule Mannheim. This practice-oriented study programme requires regular participation in the four professional orchestras (approx. 120 performances per year). As a rule, the aim is to distribute the services as evenly as possible among the four participating orchestras with their different profiles.

The OARN thus makes it possible to gain experience as well as playing practice in a professional orchestra and, with regard to the Philharmonisches Orchester Heidelberg with opera performances and concerts in various formats, provides insights into everyday professional life in a multi-discipline orchestra.
