Final presentation of the one-week music workshop with the Ensemble Modern


In the run-up to cresc... 2013, 220 teenagers from different schools will find their own approach to contemporary music, aided by members of the Ensemble Modern, education trainers, an author and an actor. For one week, they will explore Zimmermann’s »Musique pour les soupers du Roi Ubu« at the State Music Academy of Hesse and present the results of their work at Frankfurt LAB.

Culture Day Year is an interdisciplinary format initiated by the ALTANA Cultural Foundation which aims to integrate aesthetic education in daily school life: in 2013/14, it takes place for the fifth time at Frankfurt’s Bettina School, in cooperation with the Stiftung Polytechnische Gesellschaft Frankfurt, the Cultural Ministry of Hesse and the International Ensemble Modern Academy, and for the third time at the Integrated Comprehensive School Nordend, with additional cooperation of the Forsythe Company and the Frankfurt Theatre.

A musical story about time – with contemporary music

Members of the International Ensemble Modern Academy

For kindergarten children: Tuesday, Nov. 19, at 9:30 and 11:00 am

Music as an experience – for children aged three to six who want to be introduced to music and various instruments of the orchestra, together with their parents or their kindergarten friends, we have developed this sound offensive which involves all the senses. Listening quietly and singing along, clapping, making music and dancing – »anything goes« in order to explore the fascinating world of music.

In cooperation with the concert series »Rabauken und Trompeten« of Alte Oper Frankfurt

Ticket: 8,– € (reduced: 5,– €)
