Strongly committed to Munich and its music traditions, the Munich Symphony Orchestra is one of the city's four symphony orchestras. The Orchestra takes as its motto and as its remit the maxim "The Sound of our City.
In addition to the concerts in Munich, the Munich Symphony Orchestra plays in different cities all over Bavaria, especially in Kempten and Garmisch-Partenkirchen, to show up for visitors, who don’t have a professional orchestra in their city.
The orchestra doesn’t only care for the traditional classic-romantic repertoire but also for new music sounds, like the cooperation with the Munich hip-hop band einshoch6 or in their countless movie music projects. The Munich Symphony Orchestra acts as a theatre orchestra at the opera festival Gut Immling.
The Education program contains special concerts for kids and young people and accompanied rehearsal visits for school kids.
Since the 2014/2015 season Bielefeld-born Kevin John Edusei has been the MSO's Principal Conductor.
