From harp to trombone, people of all ages who are interested in music can listen to the teachers, ask questions about music school lessons and, of course, try out instruments. A special treat awaits the audience in the small hall of the Goethe School. There, the oboe, recorder and flute teachers will present their instruments in mini-concerts. Last-minute participants can register on site.

    There will be a colorful hustle and bustle in the schoolyard of the music school from 1:15 pm: As part of the "Kita sings" project, over 500 daycare children and their teachers from 27 participating daycare centers will present their 2024 song program in two public rehearsals. "I'm particularly looking forward to this!" says the deputy principal, Katrin Heidenreich. "With their program, the Kita singt children are not only the highlight of the open day, they are also our most important target group. They may even discover their favorite instrument at the music school."

    They are accompanied by the "Kita-singt" band and the elementary school teachers. After the rehearsals, the music school's samba-batucada band will lead everyone in a lively performance to the exciting activities on offer in the music school's classrooms.

    Admission to the event is free.

    7th Regional Music Festival on 15.06.2024 in Wolfsburg

    Dear musicians of the Braunschweig region,

    It's that time again! The planning for the next, the 7th Regional Music Festival has begun. The host will be the city of Wolfsburg on June 15, 2024 . And you are all cordially invited to register again with your band, choir, orchestra, ensemble or other music group. As always, all musicians who live in Wolfsburg, Braunschweig, Salzgitter or in the districts of Gifhorn, Peine, Helmstedt, Goslar or Wolfenbüttel are welcome - no matter what kind of music you make.

    Of course you can also forward this mail to other musicians!

    The registration deadline is 31.12.2023.

    And here is some information about the planned program and venues in advance:

    • The main event area will be Wolfsburg's city center with venues and open-air stages along Porschestraße as well as in the Scharoun Theater and the indoor swimming pool.
    • But the castle will also be involved, with a musical picnic from 10:00 - approx. 13:00. Various cycling clubs will be offering guided bike tours from the region to the castle. The museums in the castle will be open and some will offer special events. A stage will be available in the park. Rooms in the castle may also be used for performances. (If you would like to perform in the castle, please indicate this on the registration form).
    • Another special venue is the planetarium. Small music groups, vocal ensembles or individual artists can perform here. However, the director would like a musical program that is thematically appropriate for the planetarium. In addition, the musicians would play or sing in the dark (with special lights for the sheet music). (If you would like to perform in the planetarium, please indicate this on the registration form).
    • Catering will once again be provided at a central location, namely the Alvar-Aalto-Kulturhaus (directly in the pedestrian zone). There are also rehearsal rooms here. There will also be networking games throughout the day and an exchange platform.
    • The Wolfsburg Choir Association would like to call for a large project choir. Rehearsals are likely to start in February or March 2024, with more information to follow.

  • Music School Grand Prix 2023

    The 19th Music School Grand Prix took place on September 23rd.

  • Music school teachers on CD!

    Sub5 - krismes and Ensemble Ciaconna

    This Corona winter, the pupils and teachers of the Wolfsburg City Music School will once again be singing and making music. However, due to the coronavirus pandemic, it is not possible for them to present their skills live. This makes it all the nicer and more important that the music school's teachers are excellent musicians themselves and can present themselves on CDs.

    There have certainly been better times to release CDs. But precisely because 2020 can do with a bit of glitter and festive cheer, Juliette Jacobsen, vocal teacher at the music school, and her a capella formation Sub5 have released krismes for the first Advent: their first CD with Christmas and winter songs. In nine songs, the five singers from Hanover prove themselves to be first-class ambassadors in the Christmas field of tension between contemplation, traditions and Coca-Cola kitsch. Softly trickling snow, Mary walking through a mystical and magical thorn forest and meeting swinging Bing Crosby and Destiny's Child: a piece of Christmas in these turbulent times.

    They were able to win over the multi-award-winning a cappella specialist Joshua Bredemeier (Hörbänd) as producer. In a normal year, there would be dates for concerts here. But like many other players in the cultural sector, Sub5 have been hit particularly hard by the coronavirus crisis. The CD can be ordered by e-mail for 15.00 euros plus shipping. It has also been available to listen to on all popular streaming platforms since 27.11.2020.

    A real insider tip is the "Ensemble Ciaconna", to which three lecturers from the Wolfsburg City Music School have joined forces to devote themselves to their great passion - baroque music. The musicians Katrin Heidenreich (recorder/traverse flute), Negin Habibi (baroque guitar/keyboard guitar) and Charlotte Kiefer (baroque cello) have been inspiring audiences on national and international stages for many years and have used the Corona summer to record their debut album, which was released at the end of November.

    The album features works by well-known Baroque masters such as Bach, Telemann and Corelli, as well as musical gems by less famous composers. CD orders can be placed via the website www.ciaconna.de/kontakt for 15.00 euros plus shipping.

    In June 2002, the Kontaktstelle Musik in Wolfsburg was founded with the cooperation of the music school. With this initiative, the Music School of the City of Wolfsburg would like to promote the networking of local culture and act as a meeting point for music culture in Wolfsburg.

    Representative of the wealth of friends and partners, you can find out about the work of the following clubs and associations here.

  • Study preparation training (SVA)

    An important area of the Music School of the City of Wolfsburg is the Study Preparation Program (SVA).

    It is aimed at advanced instrumentalists who intend to study music later. However, high school students who want to improve their grade in the advanced music course are also welcome.

    SVA students receive instruction in their instrumental or vocal major, in a minor subject, and in music theory (harmony, ear training).

    Interested students age 13 and older may submit a written application for admission to SVA and must pass an aptitude test in their major subject.

    For more information, contact the music school.
