Experience

School Concerts

Making the first step easy: alongside countless concerts for the general public, the Elbphilharmonie also offers a concert programme for schools that is tailored to a variety of ages.

From the Classroom to the Elbphilharmonie

Off to the Elbphilharmonie! It is not just a concert hall – it is also a gateway to the world of music for school pupils. Specially adapted to the respective age groups, concerts are regularly put on just for school classes. Six imaginative staged productions await primary and senior primary school pupils in the Recital Hall, while older pupils can enjoy a famous French orchestra, a hip techno marching band and a young orchestra whose musicians are only a little older than their audience.
