Special highlights include the premiere of the double concerto for viola and santur by the internationally successful composer Golfam Khayam with the renowned soloists Muriel Razavi (viola) and Kioomars Musayyebi (santur) as well as the debut of the taiko player TAKUYA with the Bridges Chamber Orchestra. In accordance with the common conception of the Bridges Chamber Orchestra's concert programs, the works are largely composed or arranged by the orchestra members.

The Bridges Chamber Orchestra is conducted by Nabil Shehata . Nabil Shehata has been chief conductor of the South Westphalia Philharmonic since 2019, has taken on numerous guest conducting roles with renowned orchestras such as the Stuttgart Philharmonic, the Munich Radio Orchestra and the Luxembourg Philharmonic Orchestra, and made his conducting debut in the Elbphilharmonie in 2023. www.nabilshehata.com

Since autumn 2019, the Bridges Chamber Orchestra has brought together freelance musicians and their instruments from various regions of the European, Asian and American continents. The orchestra members are experts in Arabic, Persian and European classical music, jazz, contemporary music, Eastern European folklore and various forms of Central Asian and Latin American music. In co-creative processes they compose or arrange a large part of their repertoire themselves. What emerges is transcultural music.
