Children's Program for the Philharmonic Concerts

Parents and grandparents visiting concerts on a Sunday morning can feel free to bring their children and grandchildren! For selected Philharmonic Concerts we offer a musical children's program. Depending on the age you may choose between the "Spielplatz Orchester" for the little ones and the children's introduction with a meet and greet with the artits for the older kids who wish to visit the concert themselves.

Spielplatz Orchester (ages 4-8)

An exciting morning including a varied program awaits the younger kids: Philharmonic musicians introduce their instruments, the children can handcraft instruments, get to know composers and musical motifs and experience a short extract of the concert. Music educators playfully introduce the orchestra instruments and the concert program.

Concert Visit including an Introduction and a Meet and Greet (ages 9-12)

Older children get to experience one half of the concert live in the Großer Saal. In the other half they discover the piece with help from music educators or spend time asking soloists like Gautier Capuçon, Heinz Holliger or Julian Steckel burning questions.
