our work

In our orchestra, young people and young adults with and without a migration background have the opportunity to learn an instrument - and this from day one in connection with playing in the orchestra!

The principle is copied from the Venezuelan "El Sistema": After a common warm-up phase, the orchestra is divided into small groups and the experienced players* (in our case mostly music students who receive an expense allowance for volunteers) coach the newer ones.
The organizational and artistic directors also receive financial compensation for their very large amount of time spent on the project.

Our members pay 10 euros a month for two weekly rehearsals, lessons in small groups and a loan instrument. This small contribution is important to us so that a liability arises. But it is just as important to us that everyone can participate and learn an instrument.

The orchestra con anima is therefore urgently dependent on donations!
We can plan best if you support us regularly with a standing order. But every single donation helps us a lot to continue our work.
