In the QuerKlang project, the pupils will investigate sounds, combine them with each other and enable other people to hear what they have discovered. During this process they are provided with support from teachers, composers and students. The different environments of school, university education and freelance composition will interact in exciting and inspiring ways.

With pupils from the Carl-von-Ossietzky-Oberschule, the Fichtelgebirge-Grundschule, the Hermann-Ehlers-Gymnasium, the Musikgymnasium Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach and the Romain-Rolland-Gymnasium.

In collaboration with their teachers, the composers Katia Guedes, Miika Hyytiäinen, Alexey Kokhanov, Max Murray and Hang Su, plus students of the lateral entry Masters course in Music Teacher Training at Berlin University of the Arts.

Querklang is a QuerKlang gUG project in collaboration with kultkom – Kerstin Wiehe, Berlin University of the Arts / klangzeitort and Berliner Festspiele / MaerzMusik.

Financed with funding from the Berlin Senate Department for Education, Youth and Family.
