Rehearsal visits for school classes

(c) Kai Bienert, 

During a rehearsal visit at the Haus des Rundfunks, students get to know the rehearsal location of the RSB and gain an insight into the rehearsal work of the orchestra. The rehearsals are not moderated. If desired, however, individual RSB members can be invited to the school in advance, where they present their instruments, report on their daily work and prepare the class for the rehearsal visit. In the following overview, the works that are expected to be rehearsed in the corresponding period are marked. However, changes may occur at short notice. The offer is aimed at both elementary and high school students and is free of charge.

Location: Haus des Rundfunks, Masurenallee 8-14, 14057 Berlin
Duration: approx. 90 minutes


9:30 a.m. Arrival of the school classes (welcome by a musician)
10:00 a.m. start of rehearsal
from 11:00 a.m. leaving the rehearsal (depending on age and rehearsal break)
