Shakespeare's vision "Fire burn and caldron bubble!" corresponds to the sparkling magic that we want to ignite with the International Youth Music Festival Baden-Württemberg. The festival takes place in the state capital Stuttgart. Due to its valley location, Stuttgart is also known as the "cauldron city". The most famous cauldron of the literary scene – Shakespeare's cauldron from "Macbeth" – contains the strangest ingredients one can imagine. The most important magic ingredients for our festival in the cauldron of Stuttgart are music, music, and more music!
The year 2021 will be a premiere year for the International Youth Music Festival "Music without Borders". The festival is a new part of the concert series "The Language of Music". The non-profit project is planned, organized and carried out by volunteers who commit themselves to supporting young musicians of different origins.
With the idea of "Music without Borders", young people between 7 and 21 express their vision of a future society – a society characterized by tolerance, common identity, and inclusion of diversity. With Schumann's idea in the back of their minds – "Tones are higher words" – young musicians express their visions, dreams and hopes via the common language of music. The participants come from everywhere and create an international stage.
Our festival is a unique non-profit project that brings together creative young people from all over the world. With international participants, a variety of compositions and a diverse audience, we would like to bring the magic into the Stuttgart cauldron and to the surrounding region. We cordially invite you to our festival of youth, music, and cultures!
