Freunde der Sächsischen Staatskapelle Dresden - das sind Menschen, die sich nicht nur für gute, ja perfekte Musik und den ganz eigenen Klang eines der besten Orchester der Erde begeistern, sondern solche Freude auch gern mit anderen teilen und zudem dazu beitragen wollen, dass dieses besondere Orchester mit seiner einzigartigen Geschichte auch eine gesicherte Zukunft hat.

Who better deserves such a commitment than the "miraculous harp", as Richard Wagner once called the Dresden Staatskapelle full of gratitude? It is probably the only orchestra in the world that hasperformed for more than 450 years and has always been among the leading orchestras of each era. In fact, the Staatskapelle's history is full of famous names from the music world; and even today, with all of the global competition,  it has always belonged to the "Top Ten".  Ensuring that this continues for future generations of musicians and music lovers in an ever-changing world is one of the declared aims of the Society of Friends of the Saxon Staatskapelle Dresden.
We look forward to making this your goal as well.
It's worth it for many reasons, especially for you. The reason we believe this you can read on the following pages.
