Luxembourg Celebrates European Music Therapy Day

This year’s European Music Therapy Day (EMTD) will take place in Luxembourg on Wednesday 15 November, with events planned for 10-18 November 2017.

Since 2014, the European Music Therapy Confederation (EMTC) has been organising the European Music Therapy on 15 November each year. The theme for 2017 will be “Hearing your voice”.

The EMTC, founded in 1990, is a confederation of professional music therapy associations, working actively to promote the further development of professional practice in Europe and to foster exchange and collaboration between member countries.

This year’s “musical ambassador” Martin Folz, together with the children of the Chouerschoul of the Conservatoire du Nord Diekirch & Ettelbruck, recorded a rendition of the song “Music every day” extra for the EMTD 2017. The song was written by Albert Berman from the Netherlands and will be played across Europe on 15 November 2017.

Moreover, between 10 and 18 November 2017, the Society for Music Therapy in Luxembourg (GML) in collaboration with music therapists in the Grand Duchy will host a series of open days, conferences and workshops in Luxembourgish, French, German and English for the EMTD 2017.

The events will kick off on Friday 10 November with a screening of the 2011 film Kino an der Praxis “The Never Stopped Music” at the Praxis fir Integrativ Musiktherapie (7 Breckewee, L-8561 Schwebach) from 18:30. Admission is free but registration is required before 8 November via email: [email protected] or tel.: +352 621 298942.
