For the 24th time, Young Euro Classic is the face of classical music in summertime Berlin this August. A transcontinental “upbeat” featuring wonderful orchestras from Asia, Cuba, the USA and Germany is followed by performances by outstanding European ensembles before the festival of the world’s best youth orchestras offers a special highlight: “Courage in Concert”, a festival-within-the-festival, brings young musicians from the Ukraine and three of “war’s neighbours” (Estonia, Georgia and Uzbekistan) to Berlin. The title says it all: music means encouragement.
In these times of war in Europe, the Festival once again rises to the challenge of strengthening the young generation of musicians, inviting youth orchestras from Ukraine and three of “war’s neighbouring countries”, Estonia, Georgia and Uzbekistan, to a festival within the festival. The title “Courage in Concert” is programmatic – encounter formats, musical exchange and inspiring concerts offer the young artists maximum encouragement. The framework programme offers further exchange, also including the audience.
The NEXT GENERATION programme’s hands-on offers and workshops encourage children and teenagers to discover music in a playful way: this year, the Young Euro Classic Children’s Day takes place on Aug. 13.
