Workshop für alle: Publikum und Konzerthausorchester begegnen sich auf Augenhöhe
Publikum Konzerthausorchester Berlin Jonathan Stockhammer Conductor Mark Voermans Solo-Pauker und Coach Leonie Hentschel Workshop-Leitung Dorothee Kalbhenn Konzept und Moderation

During a symphony concert in the Grosse Saal, have you ever wondered how the Konzerthausorchester actually manages to play together so perfectly? What do the conductor and individual musicians of the various instrument groups contribute? A successful orchestral performance, like successful coexistence in a democratic society, is based on listening to each other and deriving a multi-voiced articulation together. You can literally experience this first-hand in our workshop – even without any previous musical knowledge. To begin with, the Konzerthausorchester under conductor Jonathan Stockhammer will play an excerpt from Beethoven’s “Eroica”.

Under the guidance of a music educator and orchestral coaches, you will form a workshop orchestra. In subgroups, you can gradually assume the most important skills involved in performative interaction. Passages of the Beethoven symphony will be broken down into their musical essence and precisely imitated using body percussion, gestures and sound painting techniques. In the finale, the Konzerthausorchester and workshop participants sit opposite one another in orchestral formation and shape the piece together. The orchestra plays the original unaltered excerpt, while the workshop orchestra adds its simulations at corresponding points. Experience how important each individual is for the overall success and what it means to rise up and express your voice in a group without going under.
