A SPECIAL concert will be performed by the Chamber Philharmonia Cologne on Bank Holiday Monday.

The musicians, considered to be among Germany's finest Ensembles, will perform at St Mary's Church in Weymouth town centre on Monday, August 26 at 7.30pm.

There will be a diverse program ranging from Antonio Vivaldi and his tremendously famous 'La Tempesta de Mare' to W.A. Mozart, Niccolo Paganini and Camille Saint-Saens.

'Classical music the world over' is the motto of the Chamber Philharmonia Cologne.

They want to inspire as many people as possible across all generations to enjoy classical music. The popularity of the ensemble is reflected in the fact that the Chamber Philharmonia Cologne gives around 300 concerts a year around the globe and listeners throughout the world look forward to a musical encounter with the musicians.

The Chamber Philharmonia Cologne was founded, of course, in Cologne. Generations of musicians have been trained there for many decades and, in terms of their musicality, are thought to be unparalleled around the world.

Since November 2009, the Chamber Philharmonia Cologne has partnered with the Mercedes-Benz Centre in Cologne.

The Chamber Philharmonia Cologne's tours regularly take them to New Zealand, Australia, Spain, Great Britain, Ireland and many other countries - and of course to Germany.

The permanently expanding repertoire of the Chamber Philharmonia Cologne consists primarily of hand-picked pieces. The real appeal of the programme lies in the meeting of popular and unknown works from a wide variety of musical epochs. This sees familiar greats like Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Antonio Vivaldi in dialogue with works from people such as Sergei Prokofieff through to the “King of Tango” Astor Piazzolla.
