This is where musicology, practical performance and continuing education come together; where our musical cultural heritage is appraised, conveyed and shared. Here, musicians gain crucial inspiration for their performances, while teachers of music and other subjects can find ideas for their daily work.
Research into music history also deals with regional music culture, and researchers into musical instruments can make use of an extensive collection of historical musical instruments. Alongside a varied programme of concerts, there are courses and conferences which address current issues in education and performance practice.
