The RSB is very open to children’s and young people’s curiosity. In the context of workshops, rehearsal visits, and school, children’s and family concerts, they can become acquainted with the music and instruments of a modern symphony orchestra. On the pages below we would like to inform you about our regular education programmes and give you an overview of current projects and developments in the field of ecuation.
Each season, the RSB offers young classic lovers and their parents a colourful concert programme with different formats to listen, learn and join-in. Discover our family concerts of the 2013|2014 season!
“So what do musicians do in the daytime?” This question is posed by a number of people who are not familiar with the content of a professional musician’s life and only perceive his concert work. Interested school groups may visit the orchestra’s rehearsals upon prior arrangement with the RSB’s schools representative.
ORCHESTRA & SCHOOLS
The RSB has already worked with different schools in the past. Our current partner is the Konrad-Agahd-Schule in Berlin-Neukölln. The variety of projects that emerged from previous cooperations between the RSB and schools in Berlin and Brandenburg is documented in our project archive (in German).
CLASSIC - WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING AT?
September 2013 – June 2014
“Classic – What are you looking at?” is the title of a school project at the RSB’s partner school, Konrad-Agahd-Schule in Neukölln. Starting out from Mendelssohn’s music to “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”, schoolchildren will be examining the expression and audio language of classical music. Together with video artist Steffi Weismann, they will add a new filmic level to musical excerpts
KUNST UND SPIELE (ART AND GAMES)
From September 2013
In the project “Art and Games” the Robert Bosch Foundation will be bringing together ten major cultural institutions from all over Germany that wish to open up more to small children. The RSB was selected for the project and will now develop an enduring music mediation concept over a period of two years, directed towards children of kindergarten age.
ORCHESTRA? I LIKE IT!
From October 2013
How can we encourage young people to listen to orchestra music, and even become “fans”? This question forms the starting point of a study by the Institut für Musikvermittlung Detmold in cooperation with the Circle of Friends of the RSB. Under the headline Orchestra? I like it, the study will try to determine what an orchestra can offer to attract young people.
ADOPT A PLANET!
With the request "Adopt a planet!" the RSB calls upon school classes in years 5 to 8. Surrounding the concert on March 23rd, each class will creatively engage with one planet, supported by a musician of the RSB. A visit to the planetarium and a rehearsal visit to the RSB will also be part of the project.
Contact and further information:
Schools, teachers or kindergarten teachers who are interested in working with the RSB are welcome to contact Rudolf Döbler or Isabel Stegner at any time. Together we will develop a project especially for your school, based on your requirements and competencies, and our possibilities.
