The CAMERATA BERN Foundation (STIFTUNG CAMERATA BERN) was created in 2008 with the purpose of „fostering and supporting the musical life in the city and region of Bern, also in other parts of Switzerland and abroad, especially through operating the CAMERATA BERN as a qualified chamber orchestra and through organizing public concerts and other musical events, also in cooperation with other musicians and musical institutions as well as related institutions.”


The Foundation caters for a sustainable financing of CAMERATA BERN’s artistic activities and contributes to secure its future. Per decree dated April 22nd 2010 and retroactively taking in effect per September 18th 2008, the Revenue Authorities of the Canton of Berne have exonerated the STIFTUNG CAMERATA BERN from all taxes on account of the non-profit nature of its activities.
