Prof. Dr. Helmut Reuter
Helmut Reuter is professor of psychology at the University of Bremen and has a focus on General and Neuropsychology as well as Cultural Psychology and Legal Psychology. Another area of research is the application of psychology to everyday life, including all topics related to life and social existence. The combination of scientific and artistic work is not least of all determined by his biographical background and forms the basis of, among other things, his views on the concept of education.
“To me education is not only the acquisition of technical capabilities and knowledge which facilitates career advancement but first and foremost the evolution and growth of the personality as a life-long undertaking.”
Sophia Alice Henn
In 1990 Sophia Alice Henn was a founding member of the society „Mißlareuth 1990. Mitte Europa“ e.V. and helped to establish the border-crossing Festival Mitte Europa in Saxony and Bavaria as well as the Czech Republic, with the goal to contribute through music and arts to the international understanding of both the German and the Czech population. In addition she completed her law study at the University of Cologne as a diploma laywer in the year 2000. During her 25 years at the Festival Mitte Europa she was for many years i.e. in charge of the ticket service, the young summer team and of the majority of events. She looked after many renowned artists, such as Yo-Yo Ma, Klaus-Maria Brandauer, Pinchas Zukerman, Ephraim Kishon and for many years Lord Yehudi Menuhin.
„Music heals, music brings joy, music soothes. Each one of us, whether performing artist or audience, has experienced this many times.“ (Lord Yehudi Menuhin)
Leif Schöneboom is at home in many fields of musical life. He is aktive as an instrumental teacher, as guitarist and he organizes a concert series, that specializes in traditional and experimental singer-songwriter music.
He studied music education and musicology in Heidelberg and Cologne, where he particularly focused on Ethnomusicology and on composers from the realm of new music. For several years he assisted the composer and installation artist Rochus Aust with the staging of his works all over Germany.
To Leif Schöneboom good music is always also a form of communication, – ideally an open one.
„The composer makes plans, music laughs.“ (Morton Feldman)
I am a passionate musician and I work tirelessly to bring music closer to people. I have a master’s degree in musicology and a diploma in choral conducting. I am also honorary consul for cultural projects of the city of Odessa in Düsseldorf.
My heart has always been beating for the promotion of artists, and so I am the manager of pianist Ana Markovina at IfBK. My favourite quote about music is from Victor Hugo:
“Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot remain silent“
Dörte Fistl studied music at the Folkwang Hochschule Essen (Duisburg department), majoring in cello. During her studies she attended numerous master classes, which enriched her horizon time and again.
She has worked for 12 years at two major opera houses in the administration, the German Opera on the Rhine and the Zurich Opera House. Her participation as a cellist and choir singer in projects and music academies of the German Studienstiftung gave her valuable musical impulses.
