This event will also be used to promote further activities of the project. Based on the networks, offers and measures of the project, an intercultural music ensemble will be formed, motivated and promoted in the course of the Beethoven Jubilee Year 2020 with interested participants from the target group. The ensemble will work on a song repertoire that includes traditional and modern Arabic, Turkish, Persian and Kurdish songs as well as transcultural song arrangements and connections with works by Beethoven and other German song genres.

The workshops build on each other. It is therefore recommended to participate in all workshops in order to become part of the "1001 Takt-Ensemble".
