To play in an orchestra once - for many Cologne residents, this wish is fulfilled in the Cologne Civic Orchestra, which François-Xavier Roth has launched in the 2019/20 season. The initiative is a matter close to his heart, but also to the musicians of his orchestra. Together, they work on the works with the participants and support them in their preparations for the concert in the Kölner Philharmonie. Playing side by side with the professionals is a great motivation and a lot of fun.
Everyone is allowed to play, that is the premise, even if in some voice groups the places have to be drawn by lot because of the crowds. The musical level of the participants varies greatly.
