The Konzertgesellschaft München is a non-profit association dedicated to maintaining and promoting classical music and, since 2017, jazz .

With the international singing competition Vokal genial , which alternated annually with the August Everding music competition for instrumentalists, the Konzertgesellschaft München eV and its members paved the way for over 100 artists to international careers over the past 30 years. The Konzertgesellschaft München eV was awarded the European Culture Prize in 1999 for its services .

In addition, the association promotes highly talented musicians in accordance with the statutes, awards sponsorship awards, promotes international artist exchanges, maintains classical and modern contemporary music and promotes the Munich Bach tradition as well as music projects that could not be realized without patronage .

The Konzertgesellschaft München eV thus makes a targeted contribution to the cultural diversity of the music location Munich and Bavaria.


The association was founded in 1986 based on the model of the Mozarteum Argentino , a music foundation established in Argentina in 1952, which makes a significant contribution to the musical life of their country. The initiators of the establishment were the art historian Johann Georg Prinz von Hohenzollern and the cultural manager Helmut Pauli .


The organs of the Konzertgesellschaft München are the general assembly, the executive committee, the board of trustees and the artistic advisory board. Every member is entitled to vote and can make suggestions at the general meeting and co-decide on amendments to the statutes, election and discharge of the presidium. The Presidium, to which the Advisory Board and Artistic Advisory Board are assigned in an advisory and supporting role, works on a voluntary basis.


The Presidium consists of Karl Friedrich von Hohenzollern (President), Désirée von Bohlen and Halbach (Vice President) as well as Konstanze Wiedemann , Conrado Dornier , Norbert Roos and Jens Spaniol .

Board of Trustees

The Board of Trustees is made up of personalities from public and cultural life who appear as active promoters of music in public. It advises and supports the Presidium in implementing its goals. It is appointed by the Presidium for a period of five years.

Promotion of the gifted: competitions and award winners

The promotion of gifted children, together with the organization of well-known music competitions, is one of the central promotional concerns of the Munich Concert Society. These included the August Everding Music Competition initiated by August Everding and the International Singing Competition Vokal genial , which have been held annually since 1987.
