    For anyone ages 7 and up | duration: 60 minutes

    A string quartet comes out onstage and – starts rehearsing. That’s the beginning of “Vier gewinnt” (“Connect Four”), a show that provides children with a new perspective on music. Normally whenever we attend a concert, an event is presented. But the work that goes into making the performance happen remains hidden. The young musicians of the vision string quartet will show what making music really means: what fun it can be, but also how hard it sometimes is to coordinate four completely different egos. And how wonderful when it all works out in the end. Another point: the show reveals how closely music-making resembles our friendships. Along with famous classics they will play their own arrangements of jazz and pop.
