The Pedagogical path

During season 2018-2019, the OSR is offering a pedagogical path that will enable 14 primary classes (6P-7P-8P), 4 Cycle d’orientation classes and 4 secondary II classes,  spread over 6 concerts, to discover the life of an orchestra from inside.



All the informations about pedagogical paths (charts, concert programmes, activities) are available in the following pdf files.

PDF Primary classes
PDF CO Classes
PDF Secondary II 

  • Preparation in class with a pedagogical file designed for the teacher and the pupils by the Pedagogical Programme managers.

  • Meeting with different people in the orchestra (soloists, conductor, composer, musicians, administration, stage management…) based on everyone's possibilities

  • Instruments discovery workshop that gives the chance to get familiar with some of the orchestra instruments (percussions, strings, winds, woodwinds) and try them.

  • Participation in at least two activities for primary classes, and at least one for CO classes among the following : String instruments making, wind instruments making, plastic arts, conducting, body expression.

  • Victoria Hall visits

  • Primary school pupils attend an OSR rehearsal.

  • Each pupil is invited (by the pedagogical programme) to the concert with one of his parents, in the presence of the teacher

Two to three half days are necessary to complete the path depending on the chosen workhops. Note that a few workshops can be given in your school.

Teachers that have enrolled their class will be invited to an information meeting eight weeks before the chosen concert (presentation of the participants, handing in of the pedagogical files, organization of the path). The meeting will take place on a wednesday evening at the salle Hans-Wilsdorf (102, Bd Carl-Vogt).

Teachers who enroll in the pedagogical path offered by the OSR are committed to following it until the end.

Teachers of selected classes will be contacted by e-mail.
