This event is free of charge and can be attended without a ticket.

Around 300 primary school children visit the Tonhalle Zürich for two days and get to know the musicians of the Tonhalle-Orchester Zürich. Together they will perform a final concert in the Grosse Tonhalle. The pupils prepare intensively for this: they attend a conducting and a singing workshop, deal intensively with the various instruments and can also try them out. Together with orchestra musicians, they explore Benjamin Britten's "The Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra" in class. In this concert classic, the English composer not only introduces the different instrument groups, he also succeeds in vividly capturing the special sound of each instrument. For decades and all over the world, Britten's vision has been fulfilled to open up the thrilling variety and magic of a symphony orchestra to young people with "The Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra". This will also be palpable for all at the final concert of our primary school project Mittendrin.
