FOR PUPILS, TEACHERS AND STUDENTS
All digital and analogue activities for school classes and groups are free of charge. The same applies to projects for the advancement of up-and-coming young musicians. The only exceptions are tickets for concerts in the “Fragezeichen” workshops, which cost 8 euros apiece. In its school projects, the BRSO works together with the Bavarian State Ministry of Education, Culture, Science and Arts.
BRSO »BUSY PICTURE«
Who gets to beat the drum? Where does the glitter come from? Who packs the orchestra’s luggage? Cartoonist and illustrator Florian Mitgutsch has designed an amusing »busy picture« for the BRSO that gives primary school children a fun way to discover the structure, instruments and peculiarities of a radio symphony orchestra.
Under the slogan »We’re with you«, schoolchildren can now meet the BRSO digitally in interactive video chats. Here musicians talk with kids about their instruments and their work in the orchestra.
Orchestral Rehearsals – presented by young people for young people
Famous conductors, exciting music, a world-class orchestra: all of this can be experienced at first hand in »Echtzeit« by schoolchildren from every type of school.
In this workshop children and young people create their own music in collective compositions. They improvise and experiment with sounds together with BRSO musicians, producing acoustical responses to an existing work and presenting them publicly in a »pre-concert«.
»XCLSV! – play your part«
staged concert for children
Four brass players and a percussionist stumble upon a mysterious object that puts their friendship to the test.
Contemporary art music at school – teaching material
Our »re:compose« brochure gives teachers specific tips for bringing pupils into contact with contemporary art music and getting them excited about it – namely, by letting them make music themselves.
Discussion-Workshops for students
Talking about music means describing impressions, raising questions and putting ideas to the test. Here young people explore the roots of pieces of music in conversation with orchestra musicians, conductors, soloists, journalists and scholars.
OPEN REHEARSALS – ORCHESTRA CLOSE-UP
Here groups and school classes experience the BRSO at close quarters in rehearsal, including a backstage tour and conversations with musicians.
»On Air!« – Recording Studio tours
From conductor’s desk to radio and internet: Here schoolchildren find out how this comes about, in guided tours of the sound booth in Hercules Hall or the Philharmonie.
P-Seminars (high schools)
P-seminars give Bavarian pupils practical glimpses into various professions associated with the BRSO, such as moderation, concert management and media coverage. For example, they can make their own music videos.
SCHool Partnerships (middle and Secondary schools)
During two-year partnerships, pupils learn about various aspects of working with a symphony orchestra and present their discoveries in a wide range of projects.
