Experiencing how an*e artist* is realized, what makes him or her so special and distinguishes him or her from others hits the core of the young generation's own questions: What drives me? Can I bring in my passion professionally? How can I distinguish myself from the masses?
Depending on their age, these and many other questions are addressed by the students to the artists at Rhapsody in School when they meet in the classroom. And the musicians experience how their passion catches fire.
Artists* visit pupils* on a morning off for them at school to talk to them and play music for them. Rhapsody in School Sessions take place in classrooms of all school types: Primary, secondary, secondary and vocational schools, grammar schools and comprehensive schools all over Germany. The direct encounter gives the pupils* the opportunity to get to know the person behind the public person. They learn about his passion for music and his inner motor.
The artists* are convinced that listening to music stimulates young people to preserve their curiosity, love, fun and joy for life - our most important motivating factors.
For many years, the DNT and the Staatskapelle Weimar have been participating in this project by sending the musicians* of the Staatskapelle Weimar or world-famous soloists* of the symphony concerts to schools. Starting with the 2019/20 season, the project is to be extended to include opera. In connection with a performance visit, we will visit you in the classroom.
Please contact us if you are interested in the project. We would be happy to advise you which opera visit would be the right one for your class. The project is financially supported by the Deutsche Bank Foundation.
