In 2013, the Berliner Philharmoniker founded the Vokalhelden, initiated by Sir Simon Rattle and Simon Halsey. This is where several hundred children and young people come together to sing in their own neighbourhood. The big highlights of the season are of course always the concerts with all the young singers together. Come and join us!

Would you like to join in?

If you are between 6 and 18 years old and don’t want to just sing in the shower, then join us and come to our rehearsals!
