Our next concerts in Berlin

Classical concerts of our ROC ensembles in Berlin

The four top ROC ensembles take classical music to a level that make the concerts you attend become unforgettable moments full of pleasure and musical passion. The classical concerts in Berlin take place at locations suiting the occasions – venues such as the Berliner Philharmonie, the Konzerthaus am Gendarmenmarkt and the Haus des Rundfunks offer a superb atmosphere in which music can unfold wonderfully. 

In addition, many concerts also take place at venues in Berlin that provide classical music with a completely different background: for example, the ensembles invite you to chamber concerts at the Kühlhaus Berlin, the Heimathafen Neukölln or the Studio 14, where you can completely indulge in the music and the partly industrial, partly simply Berlin charm of the locations in a casual environment.

Concert locations of the ROC ensembles

Old masters, new pioneers

Besides works by old masters such as Mozart, Mahler and Bruckner, the ensembles also commit to new compositions full of adventures in sound and artistic risk-taking enabling them, together with you, to venture into new musical spheres. 

The ROC – two top class orchestras and two extraordinary choirs

After the fall of the Berlin Wall, many museums from East and West were merged and given a West direction. The ROC is the result of the decision to do things differently. That's why we have the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin and the Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin - that's why we have the Rundfunkchor Berlin and the RIAS Kammerchor Berlin. We took this step to preserve the East German cultural landscape. But we took this step above all because the reputation and musical quality of each of these ensembles still speak for themselves today. Each ensemble has its own spirit, its own color, its own way of experiencing classical music in its concerts.

Art and culture live through diversity. We have been able to preserve and promote this diversity in music with our four ensembles. And you can experience this diversity live in over 200 classical concerts they give for you each year!

Classical music events in Berlin 2024 & 2025

Through the complexity of our umbrella organization, the ROC, as well as the nature and uniqueness of each and every one of our great ensembles, we play a significant role in shaping the landscape of classical music in Berlin - every season we try our hand at immortal compositions and make pioneers of classical music heard in our classical concerts. Every season, we promote our youth anew and do our part to ensure that classical concerts and classical music remain a vibrant part of our cultural landscape.
