Reinhold Würth took the initiative to found an orchestra: The lover of classical music wanted to share his passion and give something back to his home region, to which he feels a strong connection. Würth Philharmoniker make music an integral part of the company’s cultural activities. Their repertoire ranges from classical to modern and includes select chamber music concerts as well as contemporary music from Astor Piazzolla to Philip Glass and specially commissioned new compositions. The orchestra will perform as Carmen Würth Forum’s “orchestra in residence” and will enrich the cultural offerings not only at Würth but also throughout the entire cultural region of Hohenlohe. The response to the orchestra has been extremely positive. All of the concerts for the first season featuring star soloists such as Anna Netrebko and Rolando Villazón were sold out. The crowning finale of the first season was a tour of the United Kingdom and Ireland by Würth Philharmoniker. In October 2018, the orchestra started its second season in front of yet another full house.
