|Kristjan Järvi and the Baltic Sea Philharmonic, at Historical Technical Museum, Peenemünde, for the Usedom Festival|
The performances in Copenhagen and Aarhus will include a series of school concerts as part of Danish Radio’s ‘Into the Music’ project, which brings children from rural Denmark to major concert halls to experience symphonic music, often for the first time. The orchestra has been part of this ground-breaking scheme since 2015, and this year will play the music of Handel and Philip Glass to more than 7,000 pupils and refugees from refugee camps in Denmark.
