Prof. Dr. Bernd Redmann, President of the HMTM, explains: »We all know how hard the Corona pandemic is hitting the cultural and events sector. Our students, too, have lost nearly all of their performance opportunities. This makes it all the more important to provide other opportunities for them to gain stage experience. I am therefore very happy that we were able to set up our Grand Concert Hall for live streams, and I hope that our audience will also benefit.«

The concerts will be streamed on the YouTube channel of the HMTM.
The relevant dates will be published on the HMTM website.
