tenth elephantastic children's concert

Confetti, cake, gifts and of course lots of birthday music! This is what it looks like when the elephant celebrates its 10th anniversary on stage. And you'll be there when Anke Engelke, André Gatzke and the WDR Funkhausorchestra can't stop celebrating!

Since 2011 Anke Engelke and André Gatzke together with Elephant and Hare and the WDR Funkhausorchester have been discovering the world of music. Each year a different sound theme supports occupies central  stage. Last year, at the concert Something Animalistic, the theme was musical animal melodies. This time the anniversary will be celebrated with hits that have been presented in the last ten years, such as Tico Tico no Fubá and The Typewriter by Anderson.
