Professionals for the 21st century Founded in September 2015, The Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen Academy supports and promotes artistically outstanding instrumentalists in Germany who are on the brink of a successful musical career in the 21st century.
During the course of a two-year scholarship, this exceptional orchestra academy aims to equip young, well-trained graduates to optimally develop their potential in the context of the rapidly changing conditions and challenges of the cultural sector in the 21st century. In today’s cultural landscape, masterly command of an instrument is on its own no longer a sufficient guarantee of success. An innovating spirit, openness to new forms and changing context, combined with entrepreneurial courage, are becoming increasingly important.
The founding of the Academy goes back to the special relation between The Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen and the long-standing Bremen patron Annelotte Koch. Her artistic judgment, which always focused on outstanding performance with, at the same time, an eye to promoting young talent, made her something of a soul mate to the musicians from The Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen during her lifetime. Her son, Ralf Koch, has made it his mission to keep the sponsorship of musical talent alive in his mother’s spirit. The Heinz-Peter and Annelotte Koch Foundation, of which he has become chairman, is financing the start of this special academy.
The Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen Academy cooperates with the Junge Deutsche Philharmonie based in Frankfurt/Main. This is where the instrumentalist elite studying at Germany’s universities gathers for yearly workshops. Through this cooperation, The Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen seeks to ensure that the alternative education concept, which aims to close a gap in the German higher education landscape, is made accessible to the best students in the country. This also closes a circle historically, as The Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen evolved from the Junge Deutsche Philharmonie 35 years ago.
Education In the course of the two-year training, the Academy students are involved in Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen orchestra projects and tours. In addition to the musical projects, the musicians are offered an educational curriculum covering a wide spectrum of professional development: the course includes individual tuition from musicians of The Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen, as well as ensemble playing and chamber music, rehearsal training and targeted preparation of the orchestra projects with regard to their respective styles.
In the Curriculum Generale, the four Academy students receive training in relevant non-musical topics. Apart from physical training for musicians, these above all include strategic aspects of marketing and sponsoring, as well as communicating music, concert planning and dramaturgy.
In the first academic year, four highly talented academy students outshone the tough competition: Stephanie Appelhans, Yuko Hara, Theresa Lier and Nuala McKenna.
