The Family Orchestra is a diverse musical family that unites generations: children, parents, grandads and aunts play side by side here. »It’s an incredible spirit«, says conductor Christine Philippsen from the State Youth Music School Hamburg. The works are arranged in a way that allows beginners to play along – the focus is firmly on enjoying making music together.
