      Joint rehearsals with the Munich Chamber Orchestra

      Pyongyang

      Cultural Work in North Korea
      We are attempting to continue the educational programmes in Pyongyang in the scope of political possibilities.

      The present focus is on cooperation with the conservatory. In November 2012, the Munich Chamber Orchestra travelled to Pyongyang for rehearsals with the Kim Won Gyun Conservatory. During the intensive rehearsals, the North Korean and German musicians meet mainly at the musical level. However, the social and political dimensions of this visit are ever-present. This exchange was made possible with the help of the Goethe-Institut Seoul. North Korea has announced its interest in continuing the cooperation.
