my RSO, the education programme of the Vienna RSO, starts its new season, 2016/17.
The my RSO season begins with the popular “my RSO ... probt” (“my RSO ... rehearses”) series. Music school pupils will visit the professional musicians of “their RSO” at rehearsals for “Hollywood in Vienna”. Under the title of “The Sound of Space”, the orchestra gives insights into the sounds of the fantastic world of movies such as Star Wars, Harry Potter and Twilight. A tour of the orchestra’s backstage area and a meeting with its musicians make this project an unforgettable experience.
Next up is the “my RSO music lab”, which begins this season with the chapter “The Bomb”. In a workshop, Leonard Eröd and RSO musicians work with the youngsters on John Adams’s composition, Doctor Atomic Symphony. The musical experiments will then continue at the orchestra rehearsal in the main studio, and be rounded off by a performance of the entire work by the Vienna RSO for the pupils.
In addition to popular features such as “my RSO music lab” and “Inside my RSO”, a percussion workshop will be staged in 2017. Under the motto “feel the beat” you have the chance to gain a feel for rhythm and different sounds on a huge range of percussion instruments with the RSO percussion professionals.
Apart from that, “my RSO” will present itself at a day of activities held all over Austria on 14 June 2017 with a special orchestra project.
