Musical adventures

Family concerts are not just concerts – they are journeys of exploration into the vast world of music. The experienced adventurers of the Sinfonieorchester Basel treat their audiences to beautiful sounds, and help them to unearth music's buried treasure. Young and old alike then head for home enriched by a surfeit of stories, melodies and harmonies.

Lydia Koidula - the story of this woman who lived in the 19th century is known to just about everyone in Estonia. Her songs are still sung today by young and old. But who is this woman? Who was this girl who worked as her father's assistant at an Estonian newspaper at the age of 14 - at a time when German and Russian were still predominantly spoken in Estonia? We want to tell the story of Lydia - a young woman who actively and courageously stood up for her convictions, built bridges to other people and cultures and always stood up for self-determination and freedom. Together with students, we will sing her songs and immerse ourselves in the moving history of Estonia. A country that had to fight long and hard for its right to self-determination and independence.
