Tip: Young orchestras

The Berliner Philharmoniker’s Karajan Academy promotes talented young musicians and teaches not only instrumental skills, but also the typical sound of the orchestra. This enables graduates to become young professionals who continue the tradition of the Berliner Philharmoniker. Supporting talented young musicians is also the goal of the sponsorship of the National Youth Orchestra. Experience exciting programs every year when the orchestra performs in the Great Hall. The Junge Deutsche Philharmonie also performs in the Philharmonie at the invitation of the Berliner Philharmoniker. Similar to the famous professional orchestra, the orchestra is democratically organized by its members.
