Smart alecks – take a look! The traditional Christmas concert of our Education Programme will take place this year in the form of a quiz show: the presenters Sarah Willis and Malte Arkona will test the audience with fascinating questions on the topics of music, instruments, orchestras and Christmas. Of course, as every year, there will also be Christmas music with members of the Berlin Philharmonic.
A recording of the concert is available online at our Digital Concert Hall.
“Merry QUIZmas!” is the title of this year's somewhat different family concert which ushers in the Christmas period on the first Sunday of Advent. German television personality, singer and actor Malte Arkona is the guest of horn player Sarah Willis and the winds of the Berliner Philharmoniker this time, and together they will transform the Philharmonie into a quiz show with the “best Berliner Philharmoniker audience in Germany”. While the winds of the Berliner Philharmoniker spread Christmas cheer with their music, Sarah and Malte will put the audience through its paces with questions about music, musical instruments, the orchestra and of course Christmas itself. Our question to our two friendly quizmasters – perhaps more meteorological than musical: will there be snow flakes again this year?
