The Jakobsplatz Orchestra Munich, with musicians originating from more than 20 countries, makes it its Leitmotiv to play music by seldom played Jewish composers, combined with pieces from the 20th and 21st centuries.

Numerous coproductions of the Orchestra's with worldwide renowned cultural institutions include opera productions with the Bavarian State Opera, the Bavarian State Theater, as well as concerts with the Munich Chamber Music Festival (Münchner Kammerspiele) and at the Munich Opera Festival.
