Sesame Street visits the Elbphilharmonie

Exploring Hamburg's concert hall.

»You can really fool around and have fun here!«

Special visitors at the Elbphilharmonie: In this episode of the popular children's series »Sesame Street«, three siblings sneak into a rehearsal of the NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchestra and Alan Gilbert, and explore the foyers on roller skates and skateboards. They take over the World of Instruments in the Kaistudios and show what they can do. (From 09m14s in the video)

Incidentally, this isn't the first time that »Sesame Street« has visited a concert hall. Ernie, Bert and their colleague Samson once attended an entire concert given by the NDR Radiophilharmonie in Hanover – even appearing on stage.
