Cultural education

Festspielhaus St. Pölten is as an organization committed to cultural education. In various workshops you can sing, dance, create and explore all season long, exchange ideas with artists and those who share your interests and engage with the programme content on a professional level.

Simply listening and watching isn’t enough (any more)? As an organization committed to its cultural education programme the Festspielhaus offers people of all ages and social backgrounds the chance to be active and realise their own creativity all season long. Take advantage of our workshop offers and become part of the Festspielhaus community. For all young professionals we offer regular masterclasses in collaboration with international companies. And for schools there is an individually tailored schools’ programme.

What can you do with your passion of dance when you don’t only want to watch but take an active part? No matter how old you are or whether you have any previous knowledge of dance, this is a place where you can develop and sharpen your dancing skills toghether with other movement enthusiasts.

 

FOR PROFESSIONALS

Masterclasses

These workshops for young professionals are a great opportunity to work with some of the extraordinary companies performing at Festspielhaus St. Pölten during season 2018/2019. The masterclasses focus either on a special artistic approach, a certain technique or various choreographic tools. But most importantly, they provide an ideal setting to sharpen your skills, really get in touch with the international artists and enlarge your personal network!

Chor 50 plus (Choir 50 plus)

The Choir 50 plus brings together singers of all kinds and people who want to become singers in a unique ensemble in which all music enthusiasts from the age of 50 are welcome to take an active part. The choir ventures a long way into unconventional musical territory – to the amazement of some of participants! New pieces are tried and experimented with. And to keep things lively there are also visits by prominent guest teachers representing unconventional musical styles. On several occasions the results have enabled these singers to amaze audiences for productions in and around the Festspielhaus.
