The importance of music in wide areas of life cannot be overestimated. Making music as instrument or singer, especially in a collective like symphony orchestras, chamber orchestras, choirs and other ensembles can be regarded as essential key in character formation of children and young adults.

For this reason, our charitable Göhde Foundation by resolution of its founders, the board of directors and the board of trustees, in 2017 has expanded its foundation aims by supporting music as important part of the arts and culture and sponsoring education in this area. The goals of the foundation are being realized by:

  • Talent support of gifted young musicians, especially in context to soloist and concert careers
  • Granting of advancement awards and scholarships
  • Support of educative music projects with a focus on integrative and holistic approaches for children, adolescents and young adults
