Cool Classic

What would you think was cool to belong to a classical concert?

This is the question that Danish Chamber Players asks high school students about in the concert and teaching course "Cool Classical". In Cool Klassisk, high school students work with the ensemble's musicians to add a concert program to the ensemble, which the young people themselves think is cool and responsible for the dissemination of.

"Everything has its time. Except good music! ” Says the ensemble's artistic advisor Toke Lund Christiansen.

In Cool Classical, high school students have listened through music history with their music teacher and some musicians from the ensemble. They have then put together a concert program, which the ensemble performs with the students who present, and which is played both for peers high school students and for the ensemble's concerts.

Ida Bruun Clausen, the high school students' teacher says:

Over the last twelve months, we, Nykøbing Katedralskolen's Music A students, have entered into a collaboration with Danish Chamber Players' experienced musicians, to put together, organize and convey our joint project "Cool classical!".

High school student Philip says of his selection of a piece by Paganini:

"Paganini's caprices in general have

  1. a bladder-ass moment over itself and
  2. are the fantastic solo pieces that have a lot of emotion, which can only tell a whole story through a violin. Paganini is/was also a great artist - so a repertoire without him would be a bit boring."

The concerts with “Cool Klassisk” were well received by the young audience because they were curated by peers. "The background music suddenly came out", as a student at Næstved Gymnasium put it.
