The Wuerttemberg Chamber Orchestra (WKO – Heilbronn, Germany) on paths of innovation: A fresh released making-of-video on YouTube (in German) shows how young people in the home city of the orchestra are exploring their city. Many of the kids are migrants or children of migrants. Do they feel at home? Are they strangers?
The kids take very personal videos from the city and learn how to create and cut a film. Four musicians from the WKO (a string quartet) play some chamber music pieces for the kids in a workshop. Those pieces which are fitting best are selected from the kids as film music. Later the new film and he chamber music is performed live on stage.
New links between the kids, their parents, the musicians and the WKO have been built during this project.
