Project Music Road Rwanda

Why Music Road Rwanda?

Music is indispensable in any society. It connects people. It plays in many areas of coexistence in education, in the reflection on the common heritage, in the cultivation of the common tradition, in churches. The level of musical education in Rwanda is very low. Only a few schools provide music lessons. A higher music education does not exist.

A long-term goal of Music Road Rwanda is to develop music education in the capital city of Kigali and other parts of the country.

Music Road Rwanda promotes the development of musical life at various levels. This includes:

In Rwanda, there has been no classical chamber music concert culture until now. Through the Goethe-Institut in Kigali, we have performed two public concerts during past visits, which were enthusiastically received. One was held at the Serena Hotel and the other at the Theater Hall of the Goethe-Institut. Further concerts are also planned for the upcoming future.
