Children & Youth
One of Malmö Live Concert Hall focus areas!
Malmö Live offers a broad range of activities for children, young people and families. Many of these activities are free of charge, although it may be necessary to register in advance via our website or email. Some activities are jointly arranged with others, although many are part of Malmö Live’s own range. The whole family is welcome to meet the music!
For chilren and families
At Okii Nami, our free-of-charge weekend music workshop, children from seven years of age can try experimental and traditional instruments, while their younger siblings enjoy other musical activities. There is also free entry to regular weekend music events such as music quizzes and sing-alongs, as well as to our recurring aural artwork Klonk – a parallel musical universe for children of all ages. Among our concerts for a younger audience, particular note should be made of our popular Nalle concerts.
At weekends we arrange everything from haunted parties to Christmas concerts for younger children, and we have also been able to arrange music summer camps for 11 to 12-year olds during some summers.
For young people
For girls only, we have recently started the Girlpower Malmö network, while the 040 Live network caters to somewhat older music lovers. As well as arranging concerts, talent shows and musical happenings, they also contribute to programming at Malmö Live.
One of our innovations over recent years is Symphony Course Live for children in Years 4 and 5 from all over Skåne. In various stages. they discover their own musical abilities and meet and listen to professional MSO musicians – both in their own classrooms and in the concert hall at Malmö Live. Each year, thousands of school children participate in the closing concert for Malmö Kulturskola’s Second-Year Choir in an exuberant concert hall packed with proud friends and family. Just as atmospheric is the Side by Side concert at which children from Malmö Kulturskola’s El Sistema collaboration perform with their role models from the MSO, with whom they regularly rehearse.
