Bundespolizeiorchester München

The Federal Police Orchestra Munich was founded in 1952 as the "Music Corps of the BGS" and is thus almost as old as the Federal Police itself, which was established in 1951 as the Federal Police.

The Federal Police Orchestra Munich has been part of the Federal Police Headquarters Potsdam since March 2008. The orchestra's home base and the starting point for its numerous trips to perform far beyond southern Germany is the Federal Police Headquarters in Munich.

The symphonic wind orchestra is regularly available for intra-office events as a sign of high esteem for the employees. In addition, it supports the public relations work of the Federal Police with benefit concerts, public events with the participation of information booths of the Federal Police and also promotes its presence in cooperation with other authorities.

Last but not least, many radio and television recordings prove the popularity of the Federal Police Orchestra Munich.
