Our Values

Swiss values and quality

The Swiss National Orchestra (SNO) stands as Switzerland’s unique project orchestra, dedicated to promoting the nation’s finest musicians, embodying Swiss values of excellence, quality, precision, and commitment.

Committed to expanding audiences, SNO initiates high-quality artistic projects that engage communities beyond cantonal boundaries, aiming to inspire belonging and foster greater music appreciation among Swiss citizens and residents.

Unlike other Swiss orchestras focusing on local cities or regions, individual founders or composers, SNO is the only orchestra with a true national identity. It serves as a dedicated platform for Swiss musicians, both locally and globally,
upholding Switzerland’s rich musical heritage.

What sets the SNO apart is its unwavering commitment to international touring, a core element of its mission statement, acting as a cultural ambassador for Switzerland.
