Holiday Programme

There's no need for holidays to be boring: numerous Elbphilharmonie holiday workshops offer lots of different ways for children and young people to let off steam – creatively and musically!

Trips to Exciting Musical Worlds

No school, no annoying exams: the school holidays are wonderful, and the perfect chance to try out something new. During the autumn and spring breaks, the Elbphilharmonie offers various workshops for children and young people that last up to five days. The participants go on outings to exciting musical worlds, play the violin or the trombone themselves, develop wild rhythms or produce their own hip-hop track together with happening producers.

Klassiko String Day

For Children Aged 6-12

People have been in love with the warm sound of the four big string instruments – the violin, the viola, the cello and the double bass – for hundreds of years. Even more reason to take a closer look at these instruments! At the one-day workshops, the musicians of Ensemble Resonanz present the members of the string family and their individual features, after which the participants have the chance to try them out themselves. At the end of the workshop, participants actually build their own instrument under supervision, which they can play on the spot and then take home with them.

Please note that only children may participate in this workshop.

Classic Cutz – Hip-Hop Project

For Teenagers Aged 16+

Create a new hip-hop track – compiled from self-written texts, hot beats and orchestral sounds. The workshop starts with the participants attending a concert given by the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra. One group, led by the successful hip-hop producer Sleepwalker, uses samples from the concert to create a new song, while a second group together with rapper Megaloh writes a text to fit, the content of which is inspired by the »Britain Calling« festival. Then everything is recorded, professionally mixed and put through final production: the outcome is a hip-hop track based on classical music, with a music video to accompany it.

Kreativ BeatObsession

For Children Ages 10+ and Teenagers

Feel the rhythm! At this holiday workshop, the participants drum as if there was no tomorrow: children and teenagers try out the effect of different rhythms, knocking, rattling, clapping, hitting the drums and inventing their own beats under the guidance of professional percussionists. These workshops also take place in many of Hamburg's local culture centres, and at the end, the participants appear together at the Elbphilharmonie in front of their parents and friends.

Please note that only children aged 10+ and teenagers may participate in this workshop.

With support from the Hamburger Volksbank

Klassiko Brass Day

For Children Aged 6-12

Some of them are all golden and shiny, while others are pretty weird to look at. The brass instruments of the orchestra not only differ in appearance, they also produce very different sounds: sometimes loud and festive, sometimes soft and delicate. At the »Klassiko Brass Day« workshops the participants spend a day finding out everything there is to know about brass instruments, and they are also introduced to the brass section of the Symphoniker Hamburg, thanks to whose tips they can soon play the first notes themselves. At the end of the day, the participants build their own instrument from hoses, tubes and funnels, which of course they then get to take home with them.

Please note that only children may participate in this workshop.
