Twelfh elephantastic children's concert


Bathing suits packed and diving goggles on: elephant and rabbit (Elefant & Hase) jump into the cold water. The new concert with André, Anke and the WDR Funkhausorchestra is again full of musical adventures. Dive into the depths of music and explore together the sounds of the underwater world.

Anke Engelke and André Gatzke have been discovering the world of music together with elephant and rabbit and the WDR Funkhausorchestra since 2011. Each year they focus on a different sound theme, such as the musical animal melodies in the concert Something animalistic (Tierisch was los), classic party hits in Birthdayparty (Geburtstagparty). and songs around the universe in Space. This season they will play around musicthemes under water. Under Water (Unter Wasser) is a theatrical concert for the little ones to marvel, listen and to participate.
