The Balthasar Neumann Ensembles finance 85% of their projects and activities themselves. The Balthasar Neumann Choir and Orchestra is social and artistic entrepreneurship in action, and we believe that this is a model fit for the future, where financial security is secured through the support of many partners and private individuals.
