Accompanied by teams consisting of a teacher, a composer and a university student, the pupils investigate sounds, arrange them into compositions and share their discoveries with the public. QuerKlang brings together three different working environments: the world of the school, of university education and that of professional musicians and composers, thriving on the sparks and tensions between these worlds.


World premieres of group compositions by pupils of Fichtenberg-Oberschule (Steglitz-Zehlendorf), Fichtelgebirge-Grundschule (Kreuzberg), Immanuel-Kant-Gymnasium (Lichtenberg), Gretel-Bergmann-Gemeinschaftsschule (Marzahn) accompanied by their music teachers as well as Joaquin Macedo, Iñigo Giner Miranda, Andrea Neumann, Evelyn Saylor and students of the University of the Arts Berlin and the Hochschule für Musik Hanns Eisler Berlin
