After several successful European tours in 2013 the Chamber Philharmonia Cologne (Germany ) is coming back to Europe in summer 2014 with a powerful and lovely new programme. They play St Mary’s Church in Athlone on Monday August 11 at 8pm.
‘Classical music the world over’ - that’s the motto of the Chamber Philharmonia Cologne. It is irrelevant for their musicians whether they are playing in a little village church, in the open air, in Cologne Cathedral, or in the Sydney Opera House - their enthusiasm to play music is the same every time.
The objective is simple - they want to inspire as many people as possible across all generations to enjoy classical music. The popularity of their ensemble is reflected in the fact that the Chamber Philharmonia Cologne gives around 300 concerts a year around the globe and listeners throughout the world look forward to a musical encounter with their exceptionally talented musicians.
The Chamber Philharmonia Cologne was founded in the city whose name they bear: Cologne, the city that is famous throughout the world for its University of Music and its musical and instrumental teaching. Generations of musicians have been trained here for many decades and, in terms of their musicality, are unparalleled around the world. Taking advantage of this pool of talent, a stock of outstanding musicians has accrued that in a changing cast take their motto across the world.
