“The music is a bridge through which people from different cultures are immediately connected and at the same time understand each other without speaking to each other. With the Orchestra of Cultures you can hear and feel exactly this exciting music, which everyone will like, regardless of age, gender, origin, education or other differences between people."-Lucy Zhao, Pipa

Franz Tröster - Trompete
"It's a very special orchestra, in which you can find the sounds of a symphonic orchestra, but in combination with musical instruments from other cultures, which we rarely hear here. This creates unique sounds that create fascinating atmospheres and emotions, thanks to the great and unprecedented compositions and arrangements of our director Adrian Werum.”Franz Tröster, trumpet
Amanda Chominsky - Flöte

It shows how music can bring people together through melodies.”-Can Demirel, Baglama
Kandara Diebate - Kora & Gesang

Fabiola Gamarra - Violine
"Playing in the orchestra is an explosion of energy during the cultural journey lived between music and musicians."

Liu Ge - Violine
“For myself, the music reflects the diversity of my inner image. This can be compared to rich colors, for example, green is hope, red is passion, and purple is profound. When I play the violin, I feel it and I want to bring this color world a little closer to every listener. The Orchestra of Cultures shows the diversity in exactly this way, which is why I look forward to every performance!”Liu Ge, violin
