The Art of Music Education
Symposium from 14 to 16 February 2018
Since 2008, the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg and the Körber Foundation have gathered the international community of music educators every two years to collectively explore the opportunities and challenges of music education work. »The Art of Music Education« now takes place for the sixth time. The symposium has previously dealt with the central topics of »Role«, »Young Audiences«, »Alliances« »Heritage« and »Cooperation with Schools«, during which numerous prominent speakers from music education and various disciplines shared their experiences.
Established in 1959 by businessman Kurt A. Körber, the Körber Foundation is actively involved in its own national and international projects and events. Located in the vicinity of the Elbphilharmonie, the KörberForum takes on current social challenges in fields of action comprising international dialogue, demographic change and innovation.
