There are no age limits in classical music. For classical music is timeless, infinitely diverse, and constantly surprising. In addition to exciting concert formats, we offer you various ways to take action yourself.

tonhalleLATE – classic meets electronic

A magical evening with classical music and club sounds. This encounter between two musical worlds will offer you a very special concert experience. In the classical section, the Tonhalle Orchestra Zurich will show what it’s made of, performing a major work of musical history. Then you’ll experience what happens when classical musicians are confronted with hot live acts – always an adventure for everyone. Thereafter, the live acts perform, and towards morning DJs take over until the party ends.
Never been? Then it’s time you did. tonhalleLATE has long since become a Zurich classic.

Student managers

Classical music is uncool and boring? We think: On the contrary. As a student manager of the Tonhalle-Gesellschaft Zürich, we want to infect young people with our enthusiasm for classical music.

Our main task is the organization of the concert on March 5th, 2020 with the Jugend Sinfonieorchester Zürich and the development of an educational offer for schools. We meet and exchange ideas with music educator Janina Kriszun once a week. In addition, we get exciting insights behind the scenes of the Tonhalle-Orchester Zürich. To broaden our musical horizons, we attend concerts and have the honor to hand over the flowers to the artists on stage. In addition, there are always smaller missions - we were able to help, for example, at the serving of Estonian beer at the season opening.

nextstop:classic – keep at it

Together with his friends the internationally renowned percussionist Fabian Ziegler, at present a student at Zürcher Hochschule der Künste, gives his debut in a concert setting which has been devised by an alumni network of former Tonhalle-Orchestra student managers nextstop:classic. The name implies the ongoing aim to give young people an easy access to concerts. In nextstop:classic one becomes immersed in unknown worlds, on journeys through the world of music or in an elaborate stage design like a Tchaikowsky drawing-room.
