We are a collective of 30 musicians from all over the world. Our passion is to combine the cherished heritage of classical music with the limitless possibility of improvisation. Our concerts are performed without a conductor, without sheet music or chairs, allowing us more freedom for movement and interaction.
Connecting European cultures through Beethoven's 9th Symphony
Inspired by Ludwig van Beethoven's 9th Symphony, nicknamed the "European Symphony", Stegreif combines this monumental work with folk songs to allow Europe to unite into a single colourful country.
16 workshops - 4 premieres - 1 symphony of change. Four female composers shape a programme that engages with the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals. A symphony of change is created together with people from all 16 German states.
Stegreif e.V. is a non-profit association. Our work depends not only on its members, but also on our numerous external supporters. Through project funding, donations and the faithful members of our Stegreif Family, we have been able to set a lot of things in motion over the past few years - for this we would like to say: Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
