Internationale Ensemble Modern Akademie

To realize their own educational ideas and support new forms of contemporary artistic creativity: this is the mission the members of Ensemble Modern set themselves in founding the International Ensemble Modern Academy (IEMA) in 2003. Today IEMA offers a broad range of educational projects for various target audiences: from education projects for young people to international master courses, the International Composition Seminar to the one-year Master’s Degree Course ›Contemporary Music‹ in cooperation with the Frankfurt am Main Academy for Music and Performing Arts. Here, instrumentalists, conductors, sound directors and composers work on 20th and 21st century repertoire together with the Ensemble Modern’s musicians as well as renowned composers and conductors. Each year’s IEMA Ensemble presents the results of the programme in almost 30 concerts each year in Germany and abroad.
