Munich’s second most famous violinist, the international virtuoso Julia Fischer, has co-founded a Kindersinfoniker for kids aged 6 to 14.

Auditions in September.

Julia, 35, says: ‘All children should learn an instrument because music gives the child sensitivity, responsibility and respect for teammates. We cannot start giving these attributes to children too soon. That was my motivation to found this children’s orchestra together with Johannes X. Schachtner and Henri Bonamy.’
