The BFO is not just about music, but civil courage too, as the orchestra is operated by an independent non-profit organization, the BFO Foundation. The history of the BFO also testifies to how lasting cultural value can be created and maintained through collaboration between the public and private sector. The Festival Orchestra is the orchestra of audiences, of music-loving citizens. It would not exist without its generous sponsors.
