The International Schubert Fest Dortmund takes place in the years between two competitions and offers the laureates the opportunity to play with international stars of classical music.
The Competition additionally seeks to add to the cultural variety and attractiveness of the Ruhr area and to draw the region to national and international attention. An important role in this process is played by its high-profile venue, the atmospheric compressor hall of the Hansa Coking Plant, which is a listed building. It is a location that means that Dortmund’s International Schubert Competition is visibly anchored in a region marked by its former mining industry and by heavy industry.
