FURTHER YOUNG ENSEMBLES

THE ATTACCA YOUTH ORCHESTRA

The ATTACCA Youth Orchestra is an orchestra for young people organised by the “Akademie des Bayerischen Staatsorchester e. V.” and is open to all children and young people interested in music who are aged between 12 and 18. The core element of the work is fun with classical music and the joy of developing selected orchestral literature together.

The ATTACCA Orchestra’s regular appearances are prepared in movement and tutti rehearsals. Movement rehearsals are supervised by members of the Bayerisches Staatsorchester. Allan Bergius, who along with his work as a stand-in solo cellist, is also a trained professional conductor, is musically responsible for all tutti rehearsals. 

Along with rehearsals and appearances at joint rehearsal and concert visits in the Staatsoper, focus points here are also on the artistic and human exchange with other youth projects and on the seminars held regularly on topics such as work analysis, organology, the piece’s genesis and composer biographies. The young ATTACCA musicians consequently enjoy in-depth insights into the world of the Bayerisches Staatsorchester.
