About the Concert

The successful cooperation between the Youth Symphony Orchestra at the Heinrich Schütz Conservatory Dresden and the Dresden Philharmonic Orchestra has existed for many years. In this sponsorship concert, children and young people make music together with members of the Dresden Philharmonic. This time the great organ in the concert hall of the Kulturpalast is the guest of the orchestra. The many different sounds of this majestic "queen of instruments" together with the orchestra lead us to expect a particularly unforgettable concert experience.
