A concert in the context of the programme for children and teenagers of the Salzburg Festival.
Any little birdie will tell you:
the Mozart Children’s Orchestra and the Salzburger Festspiele und Theater Kinderchor are giving their first joint concert! The choir, conducted by Wolfgang Götz, has been a fixture of Salzburg opera and concert productions for years; its members are aged six to sixteen and participate in projects depending on the productions. The Mozart Children’s Orchestra, founded in 2012, is a very recent ensemble, but has already established itself firmly at the Mozart Week Festival and as part of Salzburg’s cultural landscape. Under the baton of Christoph Koncz, the orchestra members, aged seven to twelve, throw themselves into their music with verve, performing demanding orchestral literature and winning their audiences’ hearts with their joyful music-making.
These two ensembles will join forces in two concerts at the Festival. On the one hand, they will offer glimpses of the musical worlds of pure orchestral and choral a cappella literature. On the other hand, the finale of this joint appearance will be Mozart’s Mass K. 220, the so-called ‘Sparrow Mass’ – and you can be sure that those little birdies will fill the Kollegienkirche with chirping, trills, music and song!
For the whole family
Duration: ca. 60 minutes
