Children from different countries, religions and cultures express their passion for music on different stages in Stuttgart. The message of a cosmopolitan, unlimited, and united society is spread through music.

There is no competition taking place on the stage, i.e. the children have the opportunity to perform without hesitation and anxiety. The concerts go hand in hand with several workshops in the Stuttgart area.

The project’s task is to raise the awareness among children and young people for a tolerant behavior towards each other within a multicultural society. The series of concerts offers an encouraging surrounding for the development of intercultural competences, the surrounding which at the same time represents a crucial requirement for a peaceful society without violence.

The main focus is on the promotion of the young musicians’ skills. We hope to build a network for future encounters. In the long term an aid society is planned for the promotion of young musicians.

Our target group consists of children of diverse nationalities aged 7 to 21 with a common passion: the love for music. The main focus lies on children with migration background who also suffer from poor financial circumstances.

Stuttgart’s initiative "The Language of Music" takes one step further after the 17-years long experience in the field of classical concerts for children. The project is accompanied by experienced music and ballet educators in cooperation with different partners, professionals in the field of music and pedagogy.

The festival takes place from June 14 to 20 June 2021. The goal for the future is to include the festival into the vivid cultural life of Stuttgart and to promote the festival as a regular annual happening.

The stages will be in Stuttgart, the regional capital of Baden-Württemberg, and in the surrounding area. One concert will take place in Esslingen am Neckar, an ancient medieval city near Stuttgart. The distance between Stuttgart city center and Esslingen is 11 km, while both of them enjoy a very good public transportation connection.
