Student Program at the Donaueschinger Musiktage Seminars, dialogues and participations for and with performers, composers and media artists.

Tutors: Sonja Lena Schmid, Teresa Carrasco, Michel Roth, Michael Kunkel, Phileas Baun

A project by the Basel Academy of Music, Hochschule für Musik Trossingen, Musikhochschule Bern and Donaueschinger Musiktage.

This year, the Festival Donaueschinger Musiktage is once again offering 95 music students* the chance to attend nearly all concerts of the festival, take part in seminars and workshops and to acquaint themselves with those involved in the festival through dialogues and discussions.

The Next Generation program takes up current discourses: what preoccupies the emerging generation of composers and performers? What are their points of orientation? What are their frames of reference? What do they set themselves apart from?

In discussion groups and seminars, the students will subject their own work and this year’s festival program to intense examination. During the Winnie-LAB "Embodied Musical-Gestural Creations”, the students realize and present own artistic ideas under the direction of the composer, performer and curator Winnie Huang (Australia/Belgium). The “Breakout Sessions” give space for free discussions led by the students themselves about events and experiences at the 2022 edition of Donaueschinger Musiktage.

The complete course program will be published in September 2022.
