Melody Carriers: International Conference

Searching new paths in youth music education

 The primary task of Filharmonia Hungary is to organise youth concerts of chamber and orchestral performances, which support extra-curricular music education. For more than 70 years, we have been bringing music close to the pupils in cultural centres, sports- and school halls while keeping track of the new needs and changes required, which constantly lead to the renewal of performances.

Every year, it is becoming increasingly difficult to attract and engage students and offer them informative, high-quality programmes, diverse in music that introduce and make young people love different genres.

We are searching for new solutions, and as a result, on 11 April 2024, from 10:00 a.m. at the BMC, we will organise an international conference, "Melody Carriers," which will present good examples of Hungarian and foreign performing organisations, performing artists, and music educators.

Participation is free, but requires prior registration.
Registration for the Conference is HERE
