CAMERATA BERN Julia Wesely 9462
Outreach & Engagement


The new event series «12nach12» makes it possible to see and experience what takes place behind the doors of PROGR, the artistic centre and cultural hub in the heart of Bern.

Hosted by PROGR and the CAMERATA BERN, the rehearsal sneak peeks in the auditorium begin at 12:12 and last about 40 minutes—perfect to combine with a lunch break.

CAMERATA BERN, with its rehearsal room and office based in PROGR, regularly participates in 12nach12. Through 12nach12, the ensemble invites you into the rehearsal period to share an excerpt of the current programme in an informal setting.

Next dates:
Thu, 1 Feb 2024 (with Antje Weithaas)
Thu, 23 May 2024 (with Meesun Hong Coleman)
Fri, 21 June 2024 (with Steven Isserlis)


CAMERATA BERN brings music directly to people far from the traditional concert setting.

Instead of the audience travelling to the ensemble, the ensemble travels to the audience and plays in social and educational institutions. The KonzertGeschenke (concerts as gifts) are short and accessible, with encounter and exchange as a central part of the experience.

The KonzertGeschenke are free of charge for these institutions and are only possible with the support of partners and sponsors. We would like to thank the Burgergemeinde Bern for making possible the first KonzertGeschenke at the JVA Hindelbank and the Zollikofen School for the Blind. If you would also like to support the KonzertGeschenke of CAMERATA BERN, please contact info@cameratabern.ch.

Next dates:
Mon, 27 May 2024 – JVA Witzwil (NOT PUBLIC)
Fri, 30 Aug 2024 – Bundesasylzentrum Bern (NOT PUBLIC)
Fri, 30 Aug 2024 – JVA Thorberg (NOT PUBLIC)

School concerts

Every year, CAMERATA BERN offers moderated concerts in the schools of Canton Bern, for students in grades 1–4.

In interactive concerts, students learn in playful ways about string instruments, rhythm and time signatures, and get to know music from over 350 years of music history.

Interested teachers should contact info@cameratabern.ch.

Rehearsal visits for school groups

CAMERATA BERN invites school classes to attend selected rehearsals and dress rehearsals. Interested teachers should contact info@cameratabern.ch.

Partnership with the Gymnasium Oberaargau in Langenthal

For the past four years, CAMERATA BERN has partnered with classes taught by Gabriel Wernly in the music focus area (Schwerpunktfach) at the Gymnasium Oberaargau in Langenthal. Each semester, in addition to attending rehearsals and concerts, the students engage intensively with a selected concert programme. They immerse themselves in music history and musical analysis, conduct interviews and discussions with musicians and guests of CAMERATA BERN and ultimately create their own concert introduction.

Evening Programme Booklet

In-depth insights into the concert programme, with detailed descriptions of the works and biographies of participating artists. The evening programme booklet is available as a PDF download starting approximately a week before the concert and is distributed free of charge at the concert.

The texts are produced in collaboration with the Institute for Musicology at the University of Bern.
