*Ardian Konzerthaus Scholarship Program*
The one year training at Konzerthaus Berlin occurs by participating in rehearsals, recordings and concerts – on average 15 services per month – as well as one-to-one tutoring with a mentor providing also an introduction to the musical tradition of the Konzerthaus Orchestra.
Moreover the participants receive audition training and mental training. They could also be involved in concert tours and film shoots, help organise junior- and sponsorship projects, and join in when the Konzerthaus Orchestra captivates audiences outside the concert hall at special events.
The scholarship position will be granted for one year to young talents from all over the world with limited financial resources. This program is especially created for Non-German citizens (German citizens can still apply for the regular scholarships at the orchestra academy of the Konzerthaus Orchestra Berlin).
