Questionnaire on cooperation between amateur orchestras and professional musicians
The German Association of Amateur Orchestras (BDLO), in cooperation with the World Federation of Amateur Orchestras (WFAO) and the the European Orchestra Federation (EOFed), invites to its international project “BTHVN 2021 – Passion meets Profession” in September 2021.
One part of this project is “BTHVN 2021 – The Conference”: an international conference on the topics Music, Interaction and Outreach, which will take place in Dresden from 19 to 21 September 2021. Forms of cooperation and synergies between professional and amateur orchestras and musicians will be tackled at the conference in lectures, workshops and open discussions.
The conference is intended to be a platform for those working in the field of amateur and professional music: Professional and amateur musicians, music researchers, professionals from the educational sector and representatives of national and international umbrella organisations. The participants are invited to exchange and share their expertise in order to develop concrete visions for the future and find new fields of interaction.
As this conference deals with the cooperation between professional musicians and amateur orchestras on an international level, we would like to get an idea of how this is currently being shaped in the various regions around the globe. The aim is also to derive concrete and practical results from your answers and the conversations and discussions at the conference.
We cordially invite you to participate in the survey and look forward to your feedback. Please, take the opportunity to provide valuable input to the conference. We welcome your reports about your specific situation, thoughts and ideas. The processing time is about 15-20 minutes. We appreciate your feedback by 31 March 2021.
