The turn of May and June is traditionally the period when the Brno Philharmonic seeks to demonstrate the beauty of music to children and students, nurturing their musical talents and their relationship with music in an entertaining manner. The Mozart’s Children festival is now in its ninth year.
The Mozart’s Children project, run by the Brno Philharmonic together with the Elementary Arts School in Smetanova 8, Brno, aims to entice children and youth of all ages into the fantastic world of music, giving the talented pupils the opportunity to perform in front of a packed audience and helping the youngest ones to discover their own musical abilities and feelings for music, in short, to discover their musical selves. In essence, the project supports the development of children’s musical talents and skills, and seeks to evolve their relationship with music (not just classical music).
The programme of Mozart’s Children includes educational events focussed on the musical perception of young listeners (workshops led by experienced lecturers), public performances by young musicians from South Moravia’s elementary arts schools (cimbalom bands, dance troupes, big bands, brass orchestras, etc.) in Brno’s squares and other public spaces; prestigious concerts at Besední dům, where the young soloists present their art accompanied by the Brno Philharmonic; and a wealth of accompanying events. The highlight is a festive concert where the “young Mozarts” join the ranks of the Philharmonic and perform symphonic music together.
