The Frankfurt Opera and Museum Orchestra (in German, Frankfurt Opern und Museumorchester or Städtisches Opern und Museumorchester Frankfurt) is one of Germany's oldest and most renowned symphonic ensembles. Its beginnings date back as far as the late 18th century, when Frankfurt's municipal opera house came into being. In 1808 a local music society began to organize concerts by the orchestra at the Frankfurt Museum, which soon gave the group its rather unusual name.
Since the turn of the millennium the orchestra has often been the recipient of Opera Orchestra of the Year and Orchestra of the Year nods from Germany's Opernwelt magazine. The orchestra plays a ten-concert subscription season in Frankfurt at the city's Alte Oper (now a concert hall). Its music director as of 2018 was Sebastian Weigle. As of 2017 the orchestra also operates the Paul Hindemith Orkesterakademie, an institute for the training of young orchestral musicians.
