Wide-eyed and so much to tell – guaranteed with our range of offers for families and children. Because music is a wonderful thing. And because we’re convinced of this, we do a great deal to ensure that even very young concertgoers can experience it. Join us on a voyage of discovery in the fascinating world of music! All concerts for families and children are given on Sundays.
For children from 5 years on
Family Concerts – an experience for all the family
Family Concerts at the Tonhalle Maag combine music with a story or theme. Stories are told between the orchestral pieces, which are usually played by the Tonhalle Orchestra Zurich and sometimes by a youth orchestra. The children establish connections, respond to and can thus immerse themselves completely in the music.
Incidentally, there is a very long tradition of family concerts in Zurich: concerts were offered for families as long ago as 1928. They are now given five times per season, mostly on Sundays at 11.15 a.m. and 2.15 p.m.
Chamber Music for Children – musical adventures at the community centre
The chamber music concerts for children take place in changing Gemeinschaftszentren (community centers) of the city of Zurich. Embedded in an exciting story, the children each experience a group of instruments from the orchestra close up - there is a lot to discover.
«Chamber music for children» takes place on Sundays at 11.30am, before that there will be brunch for everyone from 10am onwards. Tickets for these concerts are only available in the respective community center.
In cooperation with the Verein Kulturvermittlung Zürich (Zurich Cultural Education Society), we organise exciting courses for children lasting several days. It isn’t always necessary to travel far to discover new things!
