Andreas Kern and four enthusiastic kids - Anton, Frederik, Karoline and Majken - are in hot

pursuit of musical masterpieces. In their Klassikkutsche – a classic VW bus with a built-in

piano – they are on the trail of  Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakow’s "Flight oft he Bumble Bees."

Due to its fast pace – 180 beats per minute – this work is even in the Guinnes Book

of Records. Andreas and the four kids explore how this classical piece can serve as

an inspiration for a more contemporary musical creation that includes double

bass, vibraphone and cool hip-hop dance moves.
