Ambassadors are well-known people who support Konzerthaus Dortmund in intellectual and financial ways. Your donations will finance remarkable concerts. They support the reputation and concerns of the hall in society, politics and business and contribute to Konzerthaus Dortmund remaining a musical equal of halls in Europe’s capital cities. This is how ambassadors help Konzerthaus Dortmund to be a key locational factor for the future of the city and the region.

Message from the Ambassador Board

We are happy to have one of Europe’s best concert halls in our city. Its varied programme has been impressing its audiences for 20 years. 
We constantly see the importance of music, not only in Dortmund but over the whole world. Music creates happy moments! Music brings people together, overcoming barriers and crossing frontiers! It provides new impetus!
The number of ambassadors at Konzerthaus Dortmund has continuously increased over the years. It is a trans-regional group with a common centre: the Konzerthaus with its special cultural and personal interactions. Being ambassadors of the Konzerthaus is an honour and a delight for us.
The high quality of the hall and the performance of the team deserve to be better communicated to the city, the region and the state. The attractiveness of the region and therefore the economy benefit from this. It’s worth being part of it!


As a sign of our appreciation, the group of ambassadors is named in each season brochure in association with two concerts or series. To highlight the importance of the commitment of individuals, one of these two is traditionally the opening concert of the season. 
As a personal thank you for the great commitment of the group of ambassadors, the ambassadors are also named, if they wish, on the ambassador wall in the foyer, in the season brochure, in the “hörbar” Konzerthaus magazine and here on the website.
We organise exclusive ambassador-only events. Here, you can exchange ideas in depth with the director, you are also allocated a personal contact person and can enjoy special benefits with the Konzerthaus card for ambassadors.
