karl rahner akademie

The Gürzenich Orchestra Cologne and the Karl Rahner Academy have worked together in the area of adult education since 2004. During the seminar series ‘The Gürzenich Orchestra Introduces Itself’ members of the orchestra talk about their work and their careers, introduce their instruments and describe the daily routine in the Gürzenich Orchestra, thus offering a look behind the scenes. The annual conference at the Academy provides an opportunity to study a stylistic direction, a composer and his oeuvre or a particular work in depth – in connection with a symphony concert of the Gürzenich Orchestra.
