Johann-Strauß-Orchester Wiesbaden

The Johann Strauss Orchestra Wiesbaden was founded by Herbert Siebert in the 1970s and assembles outstanding musicians from renowned German opera and radio orchestras. The conductors vary. Soprano Claudia Grundmann and violist Laura von Schwanenflug are the new managers (since 2021).

The namesake of the orchestra, Johann Strauss and the Strauss dynasty are the main focus of the repertoire. And they are a synonym for lively, fun concerts full of Viennese music. These include composers such as Franz von Suppe, Johann Schrammel, Franz Lehar and Jacques Offenbach as representatives of the French operetta.

The Kurhaus Wiesbaden, which is known throughout Germany for its beautiful concert halls, has been the setting for their major orchestra events since 1988. Above all, the atmospheric New Year's concerts made
the Johann Strauss Orchestra Wiesbaden known far beyond the borders of the Hessian state capital.

The orchestra does not only play in Wiesbaden. It has performed throughout Germany, including Berlin, Saarbrucken and Frankfurt (Alte Oper). The orchestra can also be heard in the Wiesbaden region, e.g. in
Russelsheim, Bad Camberg and at the Bad Homburger Sommer.
