The Mozart Kinderorchester was founded in 2012 by the Mozarteum Foundation Salzburg, in cooperation with surrounding music schools in Austria and Germany, for children between the ages of seven and twelve.

In this orchestra, which was set up in close cooperation with the surrounding music schools, children and adolescents up to the age of twelve can experience growing together as an orchestra - and with verve face the technical and musical demands of Mozart's and other composers' works. The aim of the children's orchestra is to motivate young musicians to transfer their enthusiasm to the audience and to give them the unique opportunity to work with world-class international artists.

The Mozart Children's Orchestra celebrated its concert debut as part of the Mozart Week on 3 February 2013 in the Great Hall of the Mozarteum Foundation. The concert was conducted by Christoph Koncz and Marc Minkowski, Artistic Director of the Mozart Week, and moderated by Sven-Eric Bechtolf. The program included symphonies by Mozart and Johann Christian Bach, a Mozart piano concerto with 12-year-old soloist Marie Sophie Decker Hauzel, and a world premiere performance by Johannes Maria Staud. With this debut the Mozart Children's Orchestra became an integral part of the Mozart Week.

In the summer of 2013, a special encounter of the Mozart Children's Orchestra with the Orquesta Sinfónica Nacional Infantil de Venezuela ("El Sistema") took place. In a common, public rehearsal, one child from each of the two orchestras played on each podium and thus had the opportunity to experience the cross-border effect of music on their own bodies.

In the Mozart Week 2014, the Mozart Children's Orchestra presented symphonies by Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart as well as "May I ..." by Arvo Pärt. The "Spatzenmesse" was performed at the Salzburg Festival 2014 in the Kollegienkirche. It was the first joint concert of the Mozart Children's Orchestra and the Salzburg Festival and Theater Children's Choir. As part of the Mozart Week 2015, the Mozart Children's Orchestra together with the Superar Chor gave works by Mozart, Elliott Carter and Franz Schubert.
