The E.T.A.-Hoffmann-Kammerorchester Berlin is the chamber orchestra of the "Musikschule" of Berlin's district Charlottenburg- Wilmersdorf (former West- Berlin) and comprises about 20 non professional musicians. It is financially supported by the local administration.
The orchestra was founded by Dinah Backhaus and Matthias Wildenhof. We celebrated the tenth anniversary not long ago.
