Copenhagen Phil is a new name for an old revered orchestra and it draws its heritage to Tivoli’s founding father, Georg Car­sten­sen, who in 1843 engaged the then popular Danish composer, musician and conductor H.C. Lum­bye with his orchestra,  Det Lum­bye­ske Sel­skab, to play in his new Tivoli amusement park and gardens. At the time consisting of 22 musicians who mostly played concerts “à la Strauss”. Ever since they have played in Tivoli every summer, where they work full time as the Tivoli House orchestra.  A more limited repertoire is put up during the winter months in the concert hall of the Danish Music Conservatory.
