Venue August 8, The Royal College of Music (KMH)
The congress will start on Wednesday afternoon, August 8, at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm (KMH). During the welcoming ceremony we will hear our first keynote speaker, Patrik N. Juslin, and be treated to musical interludes performed by students from KMH. We will have time to mingle over drinks and a buffet. Then we will be taken by hired buses to Rönneberga Conference Center.
The Royal College of Music in Stockholm educates musicians and music teachers at the highest international level. KMH traces its roots back to 1771, and has recently moved into a modern campus area – the music college of the future. KMH’s new campus was completed in the summer of 2016 and was designed by AIX Architects, with Tobias Rosberg as the main architect. New buildings meet historic ones and they enrich each other. The new campus reflects how KMH preserves its musical heritage, and at the same time is constantly developing. At KMH, you will meet students and skilled teachers involved in a wide variety of disciplines: classical music, Nordic folk music, music from other cultures, jazz, improvisation, composition, conducting, music and media production, as well as various forms of music education, including music therapy.
