Music surrounds us in the time leading up to Christmas, setting the tone and creating a festive atmosphere. Even nicer than listening via headphones or loudspeaker is enjoying it live at a great concert hall such as the Philharmonie – especially when there’s not only a full-size orchestra on stage, but several children’s and youth choruses. This makes the experience even more intense, not to mention interactive: as every year, the audience is invited to sing along heartily when the most beautiful carols of the season resound!
