On September 23th 2021, Daniel Barenboim joined with Sandra Scheeres, Senator for Education, Youth and Family to present “The Musical School”, a new music education program in the Berlin district of Pankow.
“I am happy and proud about the start of the Musical School, a pilot project that I hope will find many replicas. I am deeply convinced that musical education is essential both for the individual development of people and for our society”, said Daniel Barenboim.
The Daniel Barenboim Stiftung supports transcultural dialogue through music education and concerts. The foundation strives to overcome frontiers and to contribute to important reforms and renewals. In this effort, music plays a key role: both as a universal language that can help to encourage mutual acceptance between people of profoundly different backgrounds and as an intuitive means of communication that has a major role to play in the prevention and reconciliation of conflicts.
