Besides its Academy and Composition Competition impuls is also promoting concerts and biennial festivals of contemporary music and organising other activities like workshops, music communications programs ... and special projects like the impuls . MinuteConcerts.
Through these versatile programs impuls offers different approaches to - and thus contributes to a better understanding of - both classical modern and contemporary music not only for professionals, but also for broader audiences.
For 2010 impuls promoted a couple of activities in Graz:
In cooperation with open music one of the selected impuls-composers for 2011, Stefan Prins, performed with the Belgium guitar quartet ZWERM in Graz on January 29th 2010 (venue Forum Stadtpark Graz, concert started at 8 pm). More infos on this concert, that included a new composition of Mr. Prins, can also be found on www.openmusic.at.
On Saturday, June 12th, 2010 impuls continued with its impuls . MinuteConcerts. Walk through Galleries with Music (introduced within impuls 2009 for the first time in Graz), and preceding workshops for young Austrian musicians.
