Open Rehearsal: Confusius Institute from the Academy of Music

A number of the young composition students at MGK (Musical Basic Course) from Frederiksberg, Kolding, Fyn and Køge have been given a very special task. The Music Confucius Institute, located at the Royal Danish Academy of Music, in collaboration with MGK Frederiksberg, Køge, Fyn and Kolding, has invited the five composition students to write new works for traditional Chinese instruments. New music for traditional instruments from another music culture with other sounds and new possibilities.
The event is an open test where the audience gets an insight into how musicians study new music and how to create a dialogue between the composers and the musicians.


Everyone has the right to great music experiences! At the mini-festival KLANG in KUBE, we make sure that the smallest, the small and the not so small are ensured one or more great music experiences. During KLANG in KUBE there are musical experiences for children from 2 years up to the almost-adults and indeed those who have just sneaked into adulthood. The best part is that a lot of the music by KLANG in KUBE is composed by very young people. It's not just music FOR younger people, but also BY younger people. Welcome to children's concerts, music school students, music dissemination, Chinese instruments and much more.
