    The “Summer of Childhood” in 2018 initiates an important project that has the generation of tomorrow in mind. In the coming years, before the start of each Summer Festival, an orchestra camp in cooperation with Superar Suisse will be held, which is made possible by the Hilti Foundation. The camp will invite children and teenagers from a wide variety of backgrounds in whose countries free music support is made possible in a model inspired by the El Sistema initiative in Venezuela. In Lucerne they will prepare a symphonic program over the course of a week, which they will then present in the large KKL Concert Hall. The uniqueness of these young instrumentalists will be heard, valued, and supported, creating a productive atmosphere in every respect. The shared music-making will motivate them to transcend themselves and overcome barriers. At the same time, they will be immersed in the exciting world of the Festival, get a glimpse behind the scenes, and be able to share inspiration with the musicians of LUCERNE FESTIVAL ORCHESTRA, who at the same time will be rehearsing for their own performances.
