The Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen (literal translation: German Chamber Philharmonic) is a chamber orchestra based in Bremen, Germany. A group of music students founded the orchestra in 1980 in Frankfurt, initially as an ensemble which the musicians own solely and without a conductor. The musicians assume responsibility for financial as well as artistic management. About 40% of the organisation's costs come from German governmental authorities. They have worked with researchers at the University of Saarbrücken to develop a management tool, the "5 Seconds Model".
