The University of Music and Performing Arts Munich (HMTM) concluded a cooperation agreement with the Mongolian State Conservatory in May 2019. The agreement confirms the intensive exchange, in particular between the HMTM Jazz Institute and the Mongolian Conservatory.
The cooperation agreement was officially handed over on 15 May 2019, in the presence of Prof. Claus Reichstaller, head of the HMTM Jazz Institute. Musicians from both universities performed an anniversary concert as part of the ceremony marking the tenth anniversary of the Goethe-Institut Mongolia in the German Embassy in Ulan Bator.
The cooperation agreement builds on the existing lively exchange between the two music colleges. Since 2014, the Goethe-Institut has been promoting Mongolian jazz talents at the Ulan Bator Conservatory with the Goethe Musiklabor Ulan Bator (GMUB). As part of this program, numerous workshops were held with teachers and students from Munich in Mongolia. Five GMUB graduates are now studying at the HMTM Jazz Institute.
