Friends of the Sinfonieorchester Basel

The 'Friends of the Sinfonieorchester Basel' association has set itself the objective of providing this outstanding orchestra with both financial and non-financial support. The Friends help the orchestra with specific projects: with the purchase of a transportation vehicle, for example, or of an instrument that needs replacing. Our aim is to enable the orchestra to fulfil those wishes that the cantonal subsidies cannot cover.

But the Friends are also there to foster a sense of community among themselves. The association's aim is to organize interesting, exclusive events about the orchestra for Friends. Together with others of a like mind, you naturally have the opportunity to meet members of the orchestra and observe them in close proximity.

We also arrange trips and outings in connection with the orchestra's tours, and with friends' associations of our partner organizations.

Why not become a member and carry on the spirit of the Sinfonieorchester Basel? We look forward to welcoming you!

The committee:
Raphael Blechschmidt, president
Robert Appel, Anne Brugnoni, Ingrid Geiser, Beat Oberholzer

If you have any questions, please e-mail Raphael Blechschmidt or call the orchestra's administration office on +41 61 205 00 95.

The Verein managed to organize a transport vehicle for the Sinfonieorchester Basel with the support of Kestenholz AG. We are proud that we were able to complete this project and are happy to see the orchestra van drive around the city.
