Zurich Chamber Orchestra (ZKO)
The Zurich Chamber Orchestra is an ensemble that enjoys an excellent reputation worldwide.
The Zurich Chamber Orchestra was founded shortly after the Second World War and since then has enjoyed an excellent reputation all over the word.
Its repertoire encompasses pieces from the Baroque, Classical and Romantic eras, as well as contemporary music. The orchestra is particularly renowned for its out-of-the-ordinary productions – such as its performances with musicians from other music genres, such as jazz or pop.
In addition to the highly popular New Year’s concert, a further highlight is the famous children’s concerts, which are geared towards young people of all ages. These concerts aim not only to convey the pleasure that music gives, but also to awaken an interest in learning to play a particular instrument.
