    Family Christmas Concert

    O TannenBRASS!

    It is an endearing tradition: our Education programme’s Family Christmas concert. Every year, horn player Sarah Willis presents an instrumental group that plays beautiful, fun, surprising and – of course – Christmas-y music. To this end, you get to know the musicians and their “equipment”. This year, you can expect a brilliant concert in every sense with the brass players of the Berliner Philharmoniker.

  • 10th anniversary of the education programme


    10th anniversary of the education programme

    Music with young people that is as much fun for the performers as the audience was the hallmark of the legendary dance projects of the Berliner Philharmoniker’s education programme. Just what electricity there can be between the Berliner Philharmoniker, young amateur singers and audience in a vocal performance was demonstrated in this 10th anniversary concert conducted by Sir Simon Rattle, which included Benjamin Britten’s children’s opera Noye’s Fludde.
