Orchestra Week 2024: Best of classical, rock & pop

The offer is aimed at music-loving children and young people between the ages of 7 and 18 who have been taking instrumental lessons for at least two years, practice almost every day and have a really good handle on their instrument. Experience with an orchestra or ensemble is an advantage, but the focus is on having fun making music together and getting to know professional rehearsals. The young talents are supported by pedagogically experienced professional musicians during the preliminary rehearsals in small groups as well as the large orchestral rehearsals and concerts under the direction of Elisabeth Fuchs.
The highlight of the week is a final concert in St. Paul's Church.

instruments: Violin, viola, cello and double bass, flute, clarinet
Costs: €189 per child for the entire week including food

Limited number of participants (80 participants). The registration procedure is always based on the principle of first come first serve. However, all participants are expected to listen to the works/songs played and practice all the pieces before the start of the project, and to continue practicing the works at home parallel to the orchestra rehearsals. The orchestra as a WHOLE can only play very well if everyone participates with full commitment.
