Music and Language

In the course of the 2018/19 school year, the Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra is inviting children to take part in an artistic project which involves the ears, the heart, the brain, the voice and language. School groups from Year 4 upwards who are interested in participating are being given the opportunity to gain some basic insights into the commonalities and the differences between language and music. In this collaboration, the stage poet and word activist Timo Brunke digs deep into his stock of tried and tested language games and methods. Classical music becomes a space for experiences in which the instruments that are slumbering within us – language and voice – start to resound, rap, slam and tell stories.
