The first principal conductor of the Tonhalle-Orchester was Friedrich Hegar, who served from its founding in 1868 through 1906. His successor, Volkmar Andreae, served an even longer tenure as chief conductor, from 1906 to 1949, the longest in the orchestra's history, directing around 1,300 concerts with the orchestra. Andreae's tenure featured the first family concerts by the orchestra, beginning in 1928.
Today, the Tonhalle-Orchester is at home in the Tonhalle Zurich. While Zurich’s very first Tonhalle stood on Sechsläutenplatz from 1867 to 1896, the Tonhalle Zurich was ceremoniously inaugurated by Johannes Brahms in 1895. On the occasion of the Swiss National Exhibition in 1939, the Tonhalle was integrated into the present-day Kongresshaus building.
