“This is what Berlin sounds like!”

Radio show featuring Berlin children and teenagers

Click [here] if you would like to take part in the Winter Holidays Music Lab. All other information is available on the Young Opera website.





We will spend an entire week opening our ears and trying to analyse the heartbeat of our city. We are 50 kids and teens aged between 8 and 15 who are taking part in the “What d’you sound like, Berlin?” Winter Holidays Music Lab organised by the Young Opera section of the Deutsche Oper Berlin.

Armed with recording equipment and other kit, we will be attempting in a number of workshops to capture the sounds of our environment. We will be familiarising ourselves with Berlin songs [ranging from folk material to chart toppers] and visiting places that have unique musical stories to tell.

We will present the results of our research along with our workshop leaders and a whole lot of music in a radio show for all the family held at the end of the week of workshops.

The radio show is scheduled for broadcast on 13th February 2015 between 7am and 9am on the “Kakadu” programme of Deutschlandradio Kultur [89.6 UKW].
