Youth Concerts Music from minimal to classical: the Elbphilharmonie invites young adults to extraordinary concerts.

Youth Concerts

The Elbphilharmonie is hosting a series of »Jugendkonzerten«, inviting young adults to experience some very special live acts. There are three very different concert formats in the mix. The Moka Efti Orchestra, the original 14-piece big band from the hit series »Babylon Berlin«, invites you on a fascinating trip back in time to the »Golden Twenties«. The audience are more than welcome – in fact actively encouraged – to sing along during the concert! »Pleistozän« (Pleistocene) is an innovative science concert about the Arctic – with commentary by a geographer and excerpts from the »Antarctica Suite« by the Australian composer Nigel Westlake. At the end of the season, pupils curate their very own concert in the »How to Concert« project. The programme? You’ll have to wait as it’s a surprise!
