The Zurich Airport Orchestra is the airport’s musical ambassador in Switzerland and abroad. It also fosters a community spirit and shared culture among staff working at Zurich Airport. The orchestra was founded in 2003 under the motto of “Music brings people together”. With its extensive repertoire of music from all over the world, the orchestra puts on unforgettable concerts at all sorts of events – celebrations to mark inaugural flights or store openings, as well as anniversaries, gatherings and receptions. Programmes are always tailored to suit the particular occasion.
The Zurich Airport Orchestra comprises 25 musicians, most of whom work for Flughafen Zürich AG or for one of its partner companies. The orchestra therefore reflects the variety of professions pursued by the 20,000+ people who work at the airport, ranging from pilots, cabin crew, managers, marketing specialists and IT technicians through to firefighters and engineers.
Since the beginning of 2015 the Zurich Airport Orchestra has been directed by Sandro Oberholzer. He completed his training as a percussionist in Paris and holds the “Supérieur d’excellence” (gold medal) diploma. He then studied arrangement and composition at the Schaffhausen Conservatory under Herman Schmidt and also trained as an audio engineer at the SAE (Zurich). Sandro Oberholzer plays and has played as a drummer in various groups, ranging from classical music through jazz and pop to rock. These include: Downtown Group, Funky Zoo, Hazy Osterwald, Sandra Studer, Hugo Strasser, Loona, John Brack, Bo Katzmann, Steve Lee, Chris & Mike, The New York Mates and many others.
