GOfBaroque wants to make school children familiar with baroque music, an art form which is mostly unknown to them. Members of EUBO 2018 will be introducing Baroque music to them by taking them on a musical journey! Together with a professional animator they will organize fun, interactive rehearsals for school children in Antwerp.
Bachs Erben is Germany’s first and only youth orchestra of HIP baroque music. Based at the site of GOfBaroque Partner Kloster Michaelstein, Bachs Erben draws students from all over Germany, they are the “next generation” of baroque musicians. They work with members of the renowned Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin baroque orchestra and some of these teenage instrumentalists have also previously engaged on two occasions with EUBO musicians under violinists Rachel Podger and Margaret Faultless, respectively. In October 2018 they will join forces once again, working at a higher level with their more experienced international EUBO counterparts, under the direction of Lars Ulrik Mortensen.
