Besides a range of school orchestras making music, the Berlin school orchestra gathering will again offer the possibility to jointly present a selected piece of music. One focus of the gathering will be the subject of music and film, another the young musicians’ work with Sir Simon Rattle. In preparation, members of the Berliner Philharmoniker will rehearse the work selected with the pupils involved. Another item on the programme will be the presentation of the creative orchestra, in which interested instrumentalists between 14 and 19 years of age will have worked creatively on the subject of film music. The focus is on experimenting jointly and on developing and presenting a piece of one’s own in a creative way.
