Rapauke macht Musik

For children from 3 to 6 years of age

Since 2013, the “Rapauke macht Musik” series thrilled the little listeners of the RSB: “Rapaaaaauke, Rapaaaaauke, freut sich schon auf Euch” (“Rapaaaaauke, Rapaaaaauke, is looking forward to seeing you”), the 3- to 6-year-old children sing in each of their subscription concerts together with Jule Greiner and Isabel Stegner, who guide them through the programme. Also always participating is Rapauke, played by Helena Boysen.

And not only Rapauke and the musicians of the RSB are looking forward to the children, but also the other way around. Because each of the one-hour concerts is full of music, visual impulses, stories, and games of movement. There are chamber music works from different epochs and arrangements of large-scale pieces for chamber ensembles, often by members of the RSB themselves. Also, the knowledge of the instruments to be heard or important musical terms are not neglected. And towards the end of each concert, children build a little percussion instrument that they can take home later. Thus, everyone can make music together once again during the last piece of music.

“Rapauke im Konzert” subscription series

The “Rapauke im Konzert”  subscription series for 2020/2021 is already sold out.

The four concerts in the “Rapauke macht Musik” series build on each other in terms of content and therefore are available on subscription together with the “Rapauke Orchestra Concert” for € 40 per person at the visitor service of the RSB.

Important note: The Rapauke programmes have some musical similarity regarding the contents with the Tubadur concerts. Therefore, it is not recommended to buy both a Rapauke and a Tubadur subscription for one and the same child, even if it should be between the two formats in terms of age. Please choose one of the concert series for each child.


The first two concerts of the 2020/2021 season will take place at Villa Elisabeth (Invalidenstraße 3, 10115 Berlin). The other concerts of the series will take place in the Kunstbunker in Berlin-Wilmersdorf “Artist Homes”, in the “Haus des Rundfunks” and in the KinderKünsteZentrum.

“Rapauke macht Musik” was created as part of the funding programme “Kunst und Spiele” (“Arts and Games”) of the Robert Bosch Stiftung and the Stiftung Brandenburger Tor and was awarded the JUNGE OHREN PREIS 2017 (YOUNG EARS AWARD).

For each concert of the 2020/2021 season, composer Daniel Ott will compose a new work which will then be premiered by the RSB musicians. The RSB’s commission is made possible by the Ernst von Siemens Musikstiftung.
