Every year, the DSO organizes what it calls ‘the largest spontaneous orchestra’ in Berlin - with many preparing for it - not only the orchestra and Berlin radio choir, but also keen amateur musicians.

In the latest performance, which took place  on September 21st 2019, at the Mall of Berlin with 1300 musicians and 2000 spectators, Christian Tetzlaff played the Meditation from Thais, conducted by Robin Ticciati, in a programme also including Dvořák’s Slavonic Dance No 2 and the Triumphal March from Verdi’s Aida.
