A classical symphony orchestra is a very colourful bunch: in the back, the fat tuba; in the first row, the violins; in the corner, a splendidly polished harp. Each instrument has its own playing technique and its own unique sound. And because the hands-on approach is known to be more fun than mere listening, in the workshop »Klassiko Orchestra Instruments«, all featured musical instruments can be tried out. Join the end-of-workshop jam to uncover whether all the contrasting musical families really do harmonise with one another.
