In 2016 the Morgenland Festival Osnabrück, in conjunction with the Institute for Music of the University for Applied Science (Hochschule) Osnabrück, started the Morgenland Campus. The one week long workshop offers students from all over the world the opportunity to work together with musicians who are closely connected with the Festival for a week to learn the specific characteristics of Arabian and “Oriental” music.
Ensemble rehearsals, lectures and concerts with outstanding personalities from the international music world offer students a once in a lifetime opportunity to extend their musical horizons.
The main focus of the Morgenland Campus is not just on musical experiences, but also on personal encounters. Participants from previous years have described the Campus as a “life-changing experience”.
Morgenland Campus participants:
Morgenland was a life changing experience. It was such a pleasure to work with so many wonderful musicians and learning so much about this music. I would definitely love to do it again and will recommend it to my colleagues!
The Morgenland week was such an inspiring time, it was a beautiful opportunity to dive in into another musical world together with people who share the same passion. This week opened new doors for me not only regarding the new style of music but also of what it means to make music together and what an importance it has to inspire each other with new ideas. Through the lectures of the professors and through the possibility to make music with them, my colleagues and I could experience music on a whole new level in a natural way.
The week of Morgenland Campus was one of the most musically inspiring weeks that I have experienced. Filled with laughter and inclusive atmosphere we were learning from each other. It was more of an exchange than one directional practise which made the experience so beautiful. I am so grateful that I could take part in it and in the end jam the new knowledge out with the world known musicians who were teaching us. Beautiful, lifechanging, inspiring. Thank you!
