Berlin Orchestra Meetup
Festival for Amateur Musicians
On 25th and 26th May, you have the chance to sample the best of Berlin's amateur musicians and ensembles in the FEZ Berlin. Among the 50 groups and 1400 musicians are symphony orchestras, chamber orchestras, big bands, brass ensembles, string orchestras, accordion orchestras as well as open ensembles and a range of children's musical groups. Accompanying these performances are a range of workshops organised by the Berlin State Academy of Music. These workshops will provide children and their families the chance to make their own music. Unusual instruments from the depths of the Acadmey will be available to try, you can make your own instruments out of recycled material and relax to the sounds of the 'hat salon'.
This will be the biggest orchestra meetup to date in the history of the Berlin State Academy of Music. Alongside the musical performances by the amateur musicians on the Foyer Stage and in the concert halls, there will be a competition for youth orchestras with a unique prize from the Deutsche Orchesterstiftung at stake. Even if your ensemble is not involved, you can still appear in front of the jury, get tips or simply listen to the other groups.
