The Chamber Philharmonic Europe

It is from this principle that the Chamber Philharmonic Europe is able to produce a creative work atmosphere over generations which inspires the ensemble with great motivation. The repertoire of the Chamber Philharmonic of Europe ranges from Baroque to modern. They are a professional and privately financed organization, which, with its increasing popularity, also is involved with several charities. The orchestra periodically engages with various partners for benefit concerts throughout Europe.


This is their first visit to The Source and their programme will most certainly appeal to a wide audience. The orchestra performs about 45 concerts per year and has made extensive tours to Switzerland, Sweden, Denmark, France, Netherlands, Great Britain and Ireland, during which the musicians have performed in many reputed concert halls and opera houses.
