Background information about the »Symphonic Mob«
The »Symphonic Mob« 2022 at Gasteig HP8 will be Munich’s first time hosting a large pop-up orchestra, which is the brainchild of the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin (DSO). Cities hosting other mobs in 2022 include Berlin, Bad Kissingen, Bremen and Potsdam. If you are interested in what a »Symphonic Mob« sounds like, then this video from Berlin in September 2021 will give you an idea. Conducted by Robin Ticciati, 250 music fans joined the DSO and violinist Christian Tetzlaff.
