KlangProben: interactive workshops for schools

Experience the atmosphere during rehearsals of Klangforum Wien with a school class at Wiener Konzerthaus as part of the 2024/25 concert cycle: EXPLOSION!

An inspiring opportunity for young people to get in touch with new music: We invite music teachers and their school classes to visit our dress rehearsals at the Wiener Konzerthaus in the 2024/25 season. During a double-lesson, music educators and musicians of the ensemble will prepare pupils for the rehearsals in an interactive and creative way directly at the school. The dress rehearsals offer low-threshold, informal access to the concerts and allow special insights behind the scenes, witnessing the ensemble fine-tuning together with the conductors - and often also with the composers of the performed works themselves.
