Attention Berlin school ensembles! After the tremendous success of the first three-day youngSTAR Festival last season, the Berliner Philharmoniker will again open the doors of the Philharmonie Berlin to all types of school ensembles from 19 to 22 June 2023. Young musicians from Berlin’s schools will take over our stages for four days – in orchestras, big bands and school bands.

What is special about the Festival? We also invite Berlin school pupils exclusively as the audience, to listen to and cheer the orchestras, choirs and bands during their first appearances at the Philharmonie. At the school class concert of the Vocal Heroes, all primary school children in the audience will be invited to sing along.
