Music is my first love – The Grand Finale
How does it feel to hold a flute? What feeling does the deep sound of a bassoon create in your entire body? Can drums actually sound different? And why are oboists often so red in the face? With professional guidance, this day offers you the opportunity to discover different instruments and try them out.
Digitally produced music is all over – on the radio, on CDs and also in live concerts, for example when so-called “loop stations” are used. But how does one actually work with sounds and machines? During the Family Day, a sound engineer will help you experiment with different sounds and equipment at our Loop, Sound and Arranging Station.
In two workshops of the Junior Festival, the “European Chorus” and “European Jam”, participants will write their own hymn for the festival, and for Europe. This hymn can be rehearsed during our Family Day by people of all ages with professional guidance – a multi-generation chorus which will perform the hymn at the grand finale, with rich colours and sounds. Come sing with us!
Of course our Family Day will feature the results of the five workshop groups who have been busy for five days sharing music, thoughts and creativity. How does composing work? How can sounds, images and words be combined? What is the sound of Europe? And how do you interview a conductor or violinist? In performances, exhibitions and their own festival blog, participating children and teenagers show what they have learned.

Today is Family Day at the Konzerthaus! Here the results and experiences of the workshop week will be presented to parents, siblings, friends and the public. Yet the grand finale offers even more: short, child-friendly concert formats are combined with further offers: experiments with recordings and tracks, chances to discover and try out instruments, singing and playfulness in every corner of the Konzerthaus from 11-17 h!
