The Philharmonie Luxembourg and the Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg 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.
The term «education» is usually associated with young audiences, but the Philharmonie has not forgotten people of other ages. Anyone with a taste for dis-coveries or who has questions about musical topics can find inspiration and answers here.
The series «Face-à-Face», which benefits from the intimate character of the chamber music hall and is dedicated to Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy’s oeuvre this season, has been conceived as a musical salon. Here, a moderator focusing on accessible explanations enables listeners to gain a deeper understanding of the works performed. A similar, more conscious appreciation for art is the goal of «Midis baroques», during which Anne-Catherine Bucher talks and plays the harpsichord, offering an opportunity to delve deeper into the cosmos of works by Johann Sebastian Bach and his contemporaries. The tenor Rolando Villazón will also proof himself a gifted story-teller when he joins the Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg for an evening dedicated to opera.
Finally, offerings entitled «résonances» enable the audience to explore the programmes of the Philharmonie’s evening concerts – whether through lectures, artist talks or film screenings. In addition there are «Study days». These themed afternoons with a limited number of participants, presented by leading experts in their field, offer an opportunity to gain a more in-depth perspective on a composer’s output or an era in music history.
In summary, there is a broad spectrum of possibilities for those who wish to experience music in a particularly mindful manner!

Over the course of 50 minutes, 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.Find out more
