KASSEL SPOHR CHAMBER ORCHESTRA
Besides, the Kassel Spohr Chamber Orchestra was founded in 2005 on the initative of Katalin Hercegh, Wolfram Geiss and Joachim Schwarz to devote itself to the string-orchestra repertoire and to give particular support to young musicians. Many of its members, including wind players when required are drawn from Kassel State Orchestra, free lance artists of Northern Hessen, as well as young, highly gifted instrumentalists. Democratically organised, the Kassel Spohr Chamber Orchestra frequently performs without conductor. Its name honours Louis Spohr, who lived and worked in Kassel for many years.
