The Orchestre de Paris, the Philharmonie de Paris’ main resident ensemble, will be celebrating its 50th anniversary over the 2017/2018 season.

The Orchestre de Paris performs symphonic concerts on Wednesdays and Thursdays, as well as some themed weekends throughout the season, for young and old alike. From baroque pieces to contemporary premières, opera, ballet and vocal music, great symphonic repertoire is brought to life by internationally renowned conductors and soloists in the Pierre Boulez concert hall at the Philharmonie de Paris, which boasts unequivocally successful acoustics and architecture.

The Orchestre de Paris, France’s leading symphony orchestra, played its first concerts under the baton of Charles Munch. A succession of prestigious musical directors followed in his footsteps: Sir Georg Solti, Herbert von Karajan, Daniel Barenboim, Semyon Bychkov, Christoph Eschenbach, Paavo Järvi and, today, Daniel Harding.

Since marking the opening of the Philharmonie de Paris with a concert in January 2015, the Orchestre de Paris has well and truly settled into its new home. Every concert is a unique musical experience for the audience.


La Grande Salle Pierre Boulez
An auditorium with the audience wrapped around the orchestra for an immersive yet intimate listening experience. The auditorium is made of two sections nestled into each other - a floating inner chamber containing the audience, creating a visual and acoustic intimacy between teh audience and the musicians, and an exterior space with its own unique acoustics and architecture. An innovation that is architectural, scenographic, and acoustic, all at once.
