Dortmund - International Schubert Competition Dortmund
The International Schubert-Competition Dortmund exists for 30 years. The competition has two categories: Piano and LiedDuo and has set itself the task of supporting young international top class artists in the start of their career as well as introducing Schuberts world of ideas to the compition participants and the audience in a way you will never find again in the world.
Therefore the competition is a big Schubert-Musicfestival for all participants and the audience which is unique of its kind. Not only in Dortmund but also in the whole Ruhr District which is strongly influenced by the mining industry and around in Westphalia the competition organizes events and concerts – like the International Schubert-Fest Dortmund at the Kokerei Hansa in Dortmund, which was launched for the first time in 2017.
In addition to the regional identification idea, the focus is also on unusual concert venues, which reflect the particular mining history of this region. For example concerts are planned in former pit sites, wash chews or underground venues as well as in other unusual venues in South Westphalia.
This enables us to strengthen a world-class cultural event in the Ruhr District, make it accessible for the public and make the Ruhr District even better known as a cultural region all over the world.
