Discover the orchestra

Together with musicians of the Wiener Symphoniker as well as with other artists, children and teenagers can work on creative projects, exploring a piece of classical music or a musical theme. Based on that piece or theme they develop their own approaches and ideas. In the end there is a performance showing their complex and exciting works.
