The annotated concerts for school classes are explicitly aimed at pupils aged 12 and over. The excerpts from a selection of works from the programme and the presentation are worked out together with a school class, which then leads the class through the concert on its own.
Interviews with conductors, soloists and musicians from the orchestra are as much a part of the programme as the performance of classics of orchestral literature. These concerts are offered exclusively for school classes and are free of charge.
