Diversity in percussion
me and all hotel, Hanover
How can percussion become more diverse?
Percussion is and remains a male domain. Although there have been some changes in recent years — for example in the diversity of percussion students — there is still a huge potential for development.
One statistic is overwhelming in its statement: on social media, 75 % of the people following the Überschlag Festival are men.
Together with music journalist Leonie Reineke, interesting guests will discuss this in a relaxed setting. This panel is supported by the initiative women*in music Hannover, which is actively committed to more diversity in music.
Leonie Reineke, born in 1989, studied musicology and singing at the Folkwang University of the Arts in Essen. She is an editor for new music at Südwestrundfunk and works as a freelance author and presenter for the cultural programmes of ARD and Deutschlandradio. In addition, she writes for music magazines, moderates discussion groups and gives lectures at conferences and festivals. One focus of her work is the music of the 20th and 21st centuries, whereby she concentrates on currents and individual cases of contemporary music
(music) cultures and the younger generation of artists. In 2015 she worked as a music journalist at Deutschlandfunk Kultur. Teaching assignments and guest lectures at the conservatories in Essen, Hamburg and Berlin. In 2017 she was awarded the Folkwang Prize in the field of musicology. In 2018, she received the Reinhard Schulz Prize for Contemporary Music Journalism.
