A unique partnership – Deutsche Bank and Berliner Philharmoniker

Experiencing music. Enabling talent. Creating something great together. For more than 30 years, Deutsche Bank and the Berliner Philharmoniker have enjoyed a close partnership. Together, they enable innovative initiatives with the common goal of making classical music accessible to people from all walks of life.

Berliner Philharmoniker

Deutsche Bank's and the Berliner Philharmoniker's exclusive partnership of more than 30 years is one of a kind in the world. As in every partnership, we share ambitions and passion for our causes. Since its foundation, the Berliner Philharmoniker has been considered one of the world’s best orchestras, captivating audiences on all continents. Outstanding performance coupled with commitment and innovation are unique attributes that make the Berliner Philharmoniker an ideal partner for Deutsche Bank.

In August 2019, Deutsche Bank and Berliner Philharmoniker had extended their partnership by another five years until 2025. This enables us to continue and further develop our joint projects and work towards our shared mission – overcoming borders and making classical music accessible to a wide audience.

For instance, the bank supported the unique Digital Concert Hall during its early years, making it possible to live stream the concerts from the Berliner Philharmoniker in brilliant resolution and tone quality via the Internet.

The Berliner Philharmoniker’s Education Programme shows how boundaries can be overcome. Since 2002, this important initiative has helped children and young people discover classical music.

The creative encounter with music helps them develop their own creativity, overcome personal and cultural boundaries and learn team spirit. The new project "Vokalhelden", vocal heroes, is the new focus of the Education Programme since early 2013. It gives young singers an opportunity to create music together.

Any time and any place: The Berliner Philharmoniker’s Digital Concert Hall

The Digital Concert Hall opens the doors to the Berliner Philharmoniker for music lovers around the globe. Highly sensitive microphones and remote cameras transmit the concerts live via the Internet in excellent sound and high-resolution image quality. More than 600 concerts are currently available in the Digital Concert Hall database, which reaches over one million registered users from all over the world.

There is music in everyone! The Education Programme of the Berliner Philharmoniker

Experiencing classical music, learning new forms of expression and overcoming barriers – these are the many opportunities offered by the Berliner Philharmoniker’s Education Programme. Since the beginning of 2002, more than 65,000 children and young people have participated in numerous projects and discovered their own talents in the creative experience with music, song and dance.

A Trip to the Moon
Singing with others is fun. It promotes team spirit and mutual respect, and boosts self-confidence. The aim of the Berliner Philharmoniker's Vocal Heroes education project is to give children a strong voice. Kids in the Berlin districts of Moabit, Hellersdorf, and Schöneberg are invited to sing together. Anyone who is interested can take part. Accompanied by choirmasters, pianists, and voice trainers, the young singers enter the world of classical music step by step. They unfold their creativity, become more self-confident, and learn how to be disciplined and show consideration for others. Simon Halsey, a world-renowned choral conductor with many years of experience in community singing, was recruited as artistic director of the Vocal Heroes. The highlight of the project are the young choir's joint performances with the Berliner Philharmoniker.
