With our »Klangwert«  series, we provide targeted support for professional independent classical music ensembles and orchestras in Germany.
We want to strengthen the position of these ensembles and, at the same time, facilitate music education and the training of outstanding young musicians.

With their musical excellence and openness to new formats, independent ensembles and orchestras are indispensable for a first-class, wide-ranging musical offering in Germany. They make a decisive contribution to enriching the musical culture in our society and promoting young talent.

In doing so, we expressly welcome their engagement with social issues, such as sustainability, our fundamental democratic values, or increasing participation in the areas of cultural life and education. Supporting independent ensembles and orchestras is also close to our hearts because these groups often do not have the same resources as state-funded orchestras and institutions. Thanks to the support provided by »Klangwert«, numerous projects were realized last year. These included concerts, workshops and performances by independent ensembles and orchestras throughout Germany.

50.000 € maximum funding

1.1.–31.3.2023 next application phase
