China Tour 2017 Crowdfunding

We are more than happy to announce, that we will go on our second concert tour through China. Such a tour costs a lot of money and so we decided to start a crowdfunding, to raise some money for the costs of our visas. It would be great of you to support us. Furthermore there are some lovely "Dankeschöns" waiting for you...

About us

We, the Akademische Philharmonie Heidelberg, are a large symphonic orchestra consisting mainly of students from the Heidelberg/Mannheim region. In 2006, the orchestra emerged from the Collegium musicum of Heidelberg University. It was first conducted by Peter Shannon and then,  until 2009, by Wolfgang Seeliger, who firmly established the Akademische Philharmonie within the musical life of Heidelberg.
