with Mirjam von Jarzebowski and Dorothée Hahne

For culture managers, concert organizers, lecturers at music schools, musicians, conductors of musical ensembles and all interested parties.

Children and young people in concert – a rarity? In the last few years, the German orchestral landscape has struggled with the young generation – with success. How orchestras win the young audience for their music is very different.

Mirjam von Jarzebowski, Redakteurin beim WDR, zeigt anhand des Musikvermittlungsprogramms “Plan M – Mehr Musik machen!”, wie es gelingen kann, Kinder und Jugendliche für Musik und das Konzertleben zu begeistern.

Dorothée Hahne then presents her composition workshop:
Musical instruments, voices, sounds from everyday life and electronic circuits are characteristic of the compositions of Dorothée Hahne. The computer as a musical instrument becomes a tool for her to make the most of the everyday sounds and to create remarkable sounds. For her vocal and instrumental works, she’s programing self-developed interactive software with which the performers on the stage multiply live acoustically, come into dialogue with themselves and the auditorium in the room is surrounded with moving and rotating sounds. In the composition workshop, she will present some of her works live and give insights into her themes of history and present, natural sciences and spirituality that inspire her.

Mirjam von Jarzebowski was born in 1981 in Stuttgart and studied musicology, journalism of electronic media and technology from 2001-2006. This was followed by European Studies in Karlsruhe and Hanover; In 2006-2009 she was Parliamentary Speaker in the European Parliament; 2009-2011 Trainee for music mediation and orchestral management at the WDR; Since 2011 she is responsible editor for the music mediation program “Plan M – Make More Music!” At the WDR.

Dorothée Hahne was born in Bonn in 1966 and studied trumpet at the Musikhochschulen Köln and Düsseldorf. In 1988 she founded her first ensemble, with which she performed her own compositions. In addition to numerous performances and concerts in museums, galleries and art associations, live-electronic and acoustic instrumental and vocal works, film music, lyrics, radio play projects, theatermusic, installations and several concert projects have been developed. She has received several scholarships and grants for her work. Since 2008, her compositions have been gaining popularity across the borders of Europe in the USA, Asia and the Middle East.
