At first, it is still hectic and noisy, but then the lights in the hall go down and the musicians stream to their places. Finally it’s time: the room is filled with instrumental colours, with energy and emotions from the first seat to the last. This is the world of classical music. People from the age of six can discover this magical world at our moderated, sometimes staged family concerts. Our young concertgoers can explore different styles of classical music, from catchy tunes to new compositions, during four concerts. How do composers paint with notes? And how is music able to make us sad or console us without any words? Together we decipher this secret code.
