The Musikkollegium Winterthur was formed in 1629, making it one of Europe's oldest musical institutions.
The orchestra now gives some seventy concerts per season, about forty of them in Winterthur. The ensemble increasingly takes part in major concert series abroad. CD recordings of works by Frank Martin, Franz Schubert, Josef Rheinberger (ECHO Klassik 2011), Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy and Ralph Vaughan Williams (ECHO Klassik 2013) have drawn international attention to the Musikkollegium Winterthur. Thomas Zehetmair, the internationally renowned violinist and conductor, has been the orchestra’s chief conductor since 2016.
In the first half of the 20th century composers such as Igor Stravinsky, Richard Strauss, Anton Webern, Paul Hindemith, Othmar Schoeck and Arthur Honegger composed for the Musikkollegium Winterthur through their patron Werner Reinhart; their music is still vividly present in today’s concert program.
The Musikkollegium Winterthur has proven strong and pioneering in its commitment for young people - the various formats for children bring about 5’000 children into the concerts and rehearsals annually. Further, new and experimental concerts are an important factor of the orchestra’s profile. Aside from organizing and performing an annual Classic Openair in a beautiful local park, it presents formats such as classic in the club, “Classic Circus” or “Film & Musik”.
