GREEN LIGHT FOR FURTHER PLANNING
The Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks very much welcomes the decision from July 8, 2921 in the Budget Committee of the Bavarian State Parliament to the new Konzerthaus München.
This is another important step that will set a lot in motion.
Sir Simon Rattle
“My fellow musicians and music lovers, around the world, our industry looks towards Munich. With its decision, the State Budget and Finance Committee sends an important signal that the preservation and further development of culture in Munich and Bavaria continues to be a major long-term priority!
When I visited the Werksviertel-Mitte, I sensed a spirit, a creative atmosphere and energy in which so much can be created and everything seems possible. The forward-looking urban planning and development that is already underway here addresses both the needs of urban society and those of an enlightened cultural policy. This approach represents a huge asset for Munich and Bavaria.
The new „Konzerthaus“ fits in wonderfully here. Of course we look forward to the irreplaceable joy of sharing great music, live in its magnificent concert halls with our beloved audiences! But through the possibilities its state of the art technology offers, the Konzerthaus will also serve as a lab for dreaming up and realizing new ways of engaging with music lovers young and old from all backgrounds, from around Bavaria and indeed from around the world. The Konzerthaus will also serve as a major international hub for innovative and high quality music education, both virtual and in person. The Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks and I can’t wait to make our contribution towards filling the „Konzerthaus“ with diverse musical life!”
Ulrich Hauschild, Manager of the BRSO
“The Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks will continue to devote itself intensively to the development of new concepts, formats, projects and ideas for music education. In the new Konzerthaus in particular, forward-looking technical and digital possibilities will offer a completely new potential for reaching new audiences and breaking new cultural mediation ground.”
