HMTM concerts at the Gasteig HP8

An important part of young artists’ education and training at the HMTM is the opportunity of performing in front of a live audience. The students’ concerts at the Gasteig HP8 each semester are a valuable addition to the programme of music at our arts centre and are usually with free admission.
