The Berlin Orchestra works with fashion designers, artists, body painters and many others. The goal is to redefine the ideas of an orchestra. A show orchestra offer more than just musical quality.
Klaus Zemke, head of the world market leader Ticketmaster and a self-confessed classical music and opera fan, was enthusiastic about the arrangements and the flexibility of the orchestra.
