Book the Singalong-Mobil

The Sinfonieorchester Basel is back on the road with its Singalong-Mobil, because singing together makes you happy! With nine musicians we visit various Basel institutions for free sing-along concerts. We have international (folk) songs from the project 'Wie klingt Basel?' with us. The project is aimed at all people aged 8 and over who love to sing. There are no preperation or any specific musical skills of the participants needed. If you would like to order the Singalong-Mobil in your organization, please indicate the possible periods for you in this Doodle survey. We will then contact you.

For any further questions please contact Lana Zickgraf (l.notexisting@nodomain.comzickgraf@sinfonieorchesterbasel.notexisting@nodomain.comch).

Wie klingt Basel

Wie klingt Basel?

Call for entries: primary school classes wanted for sing-along project!

In the upcoming 23/24 season, the Sinfonieorchester Basel wants to sing along with everyone living in and around Basel the most popular (folk) songs of the people who live in Basel. For the intergenerational sing-along project "Wie klingt Basel?" ("What does Basel sound like?"), around two hundred participants in a survey have chosen their favorite (folk) songs. Together with about 250 pupils of the primary level (from 3rd grade) we want to be on stage at the Stadtcasino Basel and perform these songs.

‹Verdi Requiem›

160 students from the Liestal and Muttenz secondary school choirs and the Sinfonieorchester Basel staged a flash mob on Barfüsserplatz in Basel on Thursday, 25 August 2022. With Giuseppe Verdi's 'Dies Irae', the students and musicians, led by conductor Leonardo Sini, gave an impressive foretaste of the joint concert, at which the entire Requiem was performed in the sold-out Stadtcasino Basel.

‹Die Drei Rätsel›

The basic material of the Drei Rätsel, also known as the story of Turandot, is one of the oldest European myths about adolescence just beginning; this transition from childhood to puberty, so extraordinarily epically portrayed, appears here framed in the old fairy tale tradition and is intended to unfold its very own quality through the portrayal of the children - those it concerns! - it will unfold a power and quality all of its own.

This concert is suitable for children and young people from the 3rd primary school class.

String classes

Already in 2013, the first string class was created, which enables all interested pupils of the Insel primary school to learn a string instrument free of charge. After many years of successful cooperation, this has developed into the association 'Orchesterschule Insel'. Since August 2020, further string classes have been established at the Thierstein primary school. The children are taught weekly by musicians from the Basel Symphony Orchestra. Together with the professionals, programmes for the big concert stage are also developed time and again.
