Founded in 1924, the Federal Association of German Amateur Orchestras (BDLO) is the world’s largest and oldest association of symphonic and chamber orchestras. Today, the BDLO is made up of more than 800 amateur orchestras and chamber music ensembles, thus gathering almost 34,000 amateur musicians of all ages. The majority of the members are autonomously organised orchestras, others are run and sponsored by institutions such as universities and music schools.
