History of the Landesakademie
On 1.9.1990, the Landesakademie für die musizierende Jugend in Baden-Wuerttemberg in the former convent Ochsenhausen was officially commissioned by the then Prime Minister Lothar Späth. Musically, the Landesakademie sees itself as a pedagogical training and further education center for the young musicians in Baden-Wuerttemberg, as well as a center for music education. Parallel to numerous seminars with a pedagogical focus and further education for teachers and educators, the Landesakademie regularly hosts high-caliber and internationally-attended master classes. Together with events such as the international choir festival C.H.O.I.R. or the International Summer Academy of Music ISAM in particular stand the master classes for a good cooperation with professors and artists from Germany, Europe and the USA.
In addition to these offers of the Landesakademie, the institution also presents itself as a further education center for amateur and semi-professional musicians and music ensembles who can book the premises of the Landesakademie for their own purposes.
