Surely everyone knows the famous motif that opens the first movement of Ludwig van Beethoven's Fifth Symphony! But do we really know who this Mr. van Beethoven was? This programme originally was planned to celebrate Beethoven’s 250th birthday in 2020, but Covid-19 threw a spanner in the works. However, This genius’s music is always relevant, even when there is no anniversary to mark! And so our school and family concerts will once again take our listeners young and old on a musical tour of discovery – join us and Juri Tetzlaff for a truly "fateful" concert experience!

Cushion Concerts

»Cushion-Concerts« are music for the little ones: familiar tunes and songs, playfully performed by a small group from the Bamberg Symphony, which will have them rapt and singing along. The youngest concert-goers get right up close to our players and hear stories told in music and words. It’s a child-friendly introduction to classical music for the next generation, and a cosy way to experience the same thrill we grown-ups feel all over again at every evening concert: the fascination of music!

Tickets € 5,00 (concessions) / € 10,00 (full price)
