Lifelong Learning

The Philharmonie Luxembourg and the Luxembourg Philharmonic have plenty of concerts and activities for kids. But music education is just as important for our adult audience. Discover our various concert formats and experience music differently.


Even if music education tends to be associated with younger audiences, the Philharmonie also likes to involve adults. After all, adults are just as keen to learn more about music, and a selection of events invite them to join journeys of discovery, finding answers to many different questions.

The series «Encounters», which takes place in the intimate setting of the Salle de Musique de Chambre and is dedicated to Ludwig van Beethoven this season, has the feeling of a musical salon, where an educator discusses the programme in easily accessible language. Anne-Catherine Bucher presents her «Midis baroques» at her harpsichord with the same enthusiasm: a chance to delve into the world of Johann Sebastian Bach or Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Also during lunchtime, the music educator Martina Menichetti invites a small group of adventurous participants to recharge their batteries while also enjoying an introduction to the world of music.

Finally, the Philharmonie’s «résonances» and «Study days», tying in with specific concerts, offer opportunities to dive deeper into the programme, including lectures, themed afternoons, artist conversations and film screenings.

All these formats enable you to experience music more intensely.



Before or after many concerts at the Philharmonie, there is an opportunity to learn more about the performers, the programme, an instrument, or other interesting people, things, and stories.

Midis baroques

While lunch is served elsewhere, the harpsichordist Anne-Catherine Bucher invites listeners to her musical salon, where she is often joined by singers or fellow musicians. Over the course of an hour, she dives headlong into the world of baroque music – always in close contact to the listeners. Lunch is available in the Foyer for those who are still hungry afterwards.
