„PICK UP AN INSTRUMENT!“
NEW MUSICIANS, INSTRUMENTS AND STORIES WANTED!
In July 2022, the festival OSTEN is to take place in Bitterfeld-Wolfen. Together with the music school „Gottfried Kirchhoff“ the composer and director Ari Benjamin Meyers has a special plan: He wants to found a factory orchestra. If the slogan of the Bitterfeld Way 60 years ago was „Reach for the pen, buddy!“, now it’s „Reach for the instrument!“ In keeping with the tradition of the former Workers‘ Symphony Orchestra. What’s special here is that in this orchestra, the children are the teachers. They teach adults basic skills on their instrument. Together, they create an orchestra that is all about one thing: learning to listen to each other. And not taking themselves too seriously. Ari Benjamin Meyers writes a composition for the new orchestra. In the end, there will be a world premiere at the international arts festival.
