Sound and Space. Music and Architecture

Für das interdisziplinäre Team rund um Stephanie Winker und Franziska Ritter ist die Architektur und Atmosphäre des Klosters Volkenroda jedes Jahr aufs neue Experimentierlabor und Impulsgeber für die Entwicklung neuer Musikformate und Aufführungsszenarien im Spannungsfeld von Klang und Raum.

After ten years of festival work at the Volkenroda Monastery in Thuringia - where the 1:1 CONCERTS were launched in 2019 - we want to reflect on the past, present the future of our festival. Therefore, 1:1 CONCERTS e.V. will open a musical think tank, an opportunity for dialogue, a vision laboratory along with our audience. What do we love about the summer concerts, what is the essence of the festival? What is it that appeals to us so much? What can we carry into the future and how? And what is it that makes you - our dear audience - come to Volkenroda year after year?

From 23 to 25 June 2023, we will meet at Volkenroda Monastery to explore how the future of the summer concerts can be shaped and meaningfully implemented - in concerts, in conversations, in workshops, during walks and, of course, with music. We are opening a series of workshops - together with musicians, members of the monastery, with young people, with our own team and the audience. Each workshop will be accompanied by our ensemble. Music can be a method, a content or stimulus - let us surprise you.

How do you envisage the future of the summer concerts? Your opinions and perspectives are important to us!
