Students from Berlin’s Secondary Schools
Martin Stegner Direction
Rose Calheiros Choreographer

Philharmonie Hall Foyer
Themes from George Gershwin’s opera Porgy and Bess are the point of departure for the 2012/2013 season’s first creative project. With Gershwin’s music as a basis, secondary school students from Berlin will formulate, develop and arrange their own musical ideas. Under the direction of Berliner Philharmoniker violist Martin Stegner and choreographer Rose Calheiros, the students will present their compositions and dances in the Philharmonie directly before the concert performance of Porgy and Bess. This project is part of the Musikfest Berlin 2012.
