Since 2010, the Freiburg Cultural Office and Theater Freiburg, in cooperation with the association "MEHRKLANG - Gesellschaft für Neue Musik", have been organizing the Freiburg children's music festival klong for Freiburg schools in grades one to six.
During the klong week, professional musicians come to classes in various schools in Freiburg and the surrounding area to take the children on a musical journey of discovery.
There are (almost) no prerequisites - the pupils should only have curiosity and a thirst for adventure along with a certain amount of stamina. The highlight and finale on Sunday will be the presentation of the musical results of the previous week to a wide audience at the big klong children's music festival on the grounds of the Ganter brewery.
Concerts, workshop presentations, hands-on activities, a musical fairy tale and much more are waiting to be discovered on this day. This project enables teachers from a wide variety of schools to integrate new impulses into their lessons, the musicians involved to gain direct experience in teaching in schools and the audience to experience contemporary music from an unusual perspective in a colorful, lively and joyful way, with the joy of experimentation and light-heartedness that can be experienced directly.
