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.
