An exciting musical experience for everyone over six years of age

Together with rbbKultur, Radio Berlin-Brandenburg’s cultural radio station, the DSO invites children of primary school age to experience orchestral music in an entertaining way geared to their age group – on Sundays at noon in the Haus des Rundfunks.

rbbKultur radio host Christian Schruff and the musicians of the DSO put together six programmes where works with exciting stories, sound samples and often with the involvement of school classes are presented on the stage of the Großer Sendesaal, the large broadcasting hall. Concertgoers aged six to twelve can discover things for themselves. They are allowed to join in, have a say and experiment – all before the concert.

Open House – giving instruments a try

At the Open House starting at 10:30 am, kids can get to know and try a wide range of instruments under the guidance of members of the orchestra – a great number of small experimental objects are available for this purpose. They can have their faces painted, do arts and crafts, sing and much more. The best parts of the concerts can be heard later on rbbKultur on the Klassik für Kinder (Classics for Children) programme.

School projects on the children’s concerts

The DSO offers school classes the possibility to take part in selected children’s concerts, for instance with a choreography, their own compositions or handmade instruments. Primary school teachers who would like to collaborate on stage with their class, please contact the music education team at the DSO by email.
