For an entire day, the trombones set the tone at the Am Hundsturm elementary school. With their instruments on their backs, laden with a large drum, glockenspiel, castanets and tambourine, the Philharmonic chamber music ensemble made up of Dietmar Küblböck, Mark Gaal, Enzo Turriziani, Johannes Ettlinger, Andreas Eitzinger and Johann Ströcker - joined by percussionist Benjamin Schmidinger - made their way to the school in Vienna’s 5th district. Twice that morning, the gym of the elementary school was filled to capacity, as none of the second to fourth grade pupils wanted to miss the concert.
As "travel guide", Mark Gaal led the audience through the program’s musical landscapes, in which the young people could actively participate. The performance by seven-year-old Toni also made a big impression and in the afternoon all the children had the chance to try to produce notes on a trombone themselves.
