The fundamental aim of the Education Programme is to make the activities and music of the Berlin Philharmonic accessible to as wide an audience as possible. Since 2002, Deutsche Bank has enabled us to connect with people from all kinds of different educational and social backgrounds.
It has facilitated an introduction for many people to a new world of sound and musical forms, and created an arena to expand and develop their individual abilities. To date, thousands of children and teenagers have been able to discover, play and listen to music in the education workshops. Above all we want to reach school children of all ages and from all districts throughout Berlin. Together with the musicians of the Berlin Philharmonic, composers and artists from other disciplines, young students explore the world of music through our various projects.
Our Education Department presents a variety of projects, all of them tied in with the Berlin Philharmonic’s current programming. Each project is individually tailored to its respective repertoire and, through a creative approach, provides participants with an entrée into the world of music. The projects, which encompass a number of different art forms, are primarily intended for schoolchildren and are moderated by music animators, members of the orchestra and artists from various disciplines. A culminating public presentation, either in- or outside of the Philharmonie, is an integral element to most of the projects, allowing participants to share their new experiences with others.
In order to enhance the sustainability of its work, the Education Department works over a longer period together with several schools as well as with cultural and social institutions in Berlin, also offering regular workshops for multiplicators. The goal here is to create a number of different links by means of music-related projects: between the Philharmonie and various Berlin districts and social groups as well as between the generations.
