Since its foundation, the JEWISH CHAMBER ORCHESTRA MUNICH has evolved through its artistic director Daniel Grossmann developed a unique profile in 2005: It sees itself as a contemporary Jewish voice, is internationally present on a wide range of concert stages and, with ever new alliances and formats, is taking unusual paths to make contemporary Jewish culture alive and audible, tangible and visible for everyone - an internationally relevant concern that the orchestra carries out into the world as a matter of course. In addition to tours to Israel, Eastern Europe, Scandinavia, North America and China, among others, the JCOM appears as an ambassador of Jewish culture in guest performances within Germany. It is an orchestra for all nations and religions. His musicians come from over twenty countries, are Jewish and non-Jewish and mostly live in Germany.
At the highest artistic level, the JCOM cultivates the rich Jewish musical tradition and a repertoire that ranges from the baroque to the present day; it brings forgotten Jewish composers to light and fills former places of Jewish life with living culture. The orchestra regularly commissions compositions and maintains long-term collaborations with world-renowned soloists and important cultural institutions such as the Bavarian State Opera, the Museum Villa Stuck or the Munich chamber games. Education and mediation projects round off the profile of the orchestra.
