Mozart Gesellschaft Dortmund

THE MOZART GESELLSCHAFT DORTMUND – A SUCCESS STORY

Up to now the Mozart Gesellschaft has given assistance to over 120 scholarship holders and has thus made the road into the hard music business a little easier for them. The number of scholarship holders is steadily increasing. Since 1956 more than 200 Mozart matinees and 180 chamber concerts have been organised.

Meanwhile the growth in members, the successful concerts and the support for young musicians have made the Dortmund Mozart Gesellschaft as a member of the “Internationale Stiftung Mozarteum Salzburg” into the most important society of its kind in the German speaking area.

The Mozart Gesellschaft Dortmund organises six Mozart matinees per season in the Dortmund Konzerthaus. These concerts have varied programmes. Mozart’s music is always combined with works by other composers. Internationally famous orchestras are invited together with present and former scholarship holders who perform as soloists. The selected scholarship holders are given support by the most different means. This support can be in the form of help in the creation of an individual website, photo shootings or the attendance at a master class. The production of CDs is given financial support and travel expenses or the cost of necessary instrument repairs are paid for.

A large proportion of all the chosen scholarship holders achieve the musical breakthrough which had been hoped for.

The work of the Mozart Gesellschaft is supported by its sponsors and members. The Mozart Gesellschaft Dortmund works as a private company without public subsidy.
