I have had a yearly Abo for the Sinfonieorchestra for the last two seasons and I must sort out my 2020-2021 abo very soon!
Why do I take an Abo for the Sinfonieorchestra? Well, I love live music and I really like the big, full, all encompassing sound of an orchestra. Sinfonieorchestra Basel can play me most things, I am just enchanted by the beautiful, rich sound that comes from them and their soloists.
Ivor Bolton is chief conductor of the Sinfonieorchester Basel, he is an internationally known conductor and is the General Music director of the Teatro Real Madrid, the Conductor Laureate of the Mozarteumorchester Salzburg, as well as music director of the Dresden Festival Orchestra.
There are also visiting conductors and soloists that bring keep the orchestra’s concerts fresh and appealing.
The concerts I am looking forward to the most are:
The Abo I take gives me entry to 7 concerts on Wednesday evenings during the season, it cost between 220-580 CHF and I have my own dedicated seat number. The 2020-2021 season starts in September with all concerts being held in the newly refurbished Stadt Casino – can’t wait to be back at SOB concerts again then!
Beyond the season’s Abo the Sinfonieorchestra offers a lot. This is what I can recommend from personal experience:
