Making music can convey self-confidence and open new doors. However, parents may sometime lack the money and expertise to provide a musical education for their children. The Kiezklänge Association provides access for socially disadvantaged children.
Depending on talent, the most appropriate teacher is initially allocated, instruments are provided, and the lessons are accompanied by members of the association. This culminates in a concert gala at the end of the year. The association is financed exclusively through donations. 15 children attending two elementary schools in the Berlin district of Wedding, as well as one school in Tempelhof, are being sponsored at the moment. Due to support given by Vandenberg, the children can receive a musical education continuously – we already could enjoy the progress during concert evenings.
