ZAMUS. Centre for Early Music in Cologne

ZAMUS is a centre and focal point for Early Music in Cologne. A unique project in Germany, it provides a hub where the protagonists of the Cologne scene can meet and network with each other as well as with international partners in the field of Historically Informed Performance.

For decades, Early Music has played a significant role in Cologne: leading soloists and ensembles in the field of Early Music who live and work here give first-rate guest performances world-wide. In no other German city is such great potential to be found in such a high density. The guiding principle behind ZAMUS is working together to find better ways to put this potential to use.

ZAMUS not only provides a platform for presenting Early Music in Cologne, it also allows visions to emerge and evolve, developing new possibilities for networking and innovative projects. These projects include pedagogical events, conferences, and the "Cologne Early Music Festival". ZAMUS is a service-centre for Cologne's Early Music protagonists. ZAMUS combines competence, information, and active interchange and so provides for ideal working structures and meaningful cooperations, even beyond the city limits.
