The Music Confucius Institute (MCI) was established in 2012 between the Central Conservatory of Music (CCOM) in Beijing and The Royal Danish Academy of Music (RDAM) in Copenhagen.
The purpose of the MCI is to facilitate musical and cultural exchange between China and Denmark. MCI aims to actively contribute to the future global development of music by creating synergies between classical Western and Chinese musical traditions.
As an institute within RDAM, MCI works with projects, that create and develop new relationships between Chinese and Western music culture. The institute organises activities, that include lectures, workshops, and concerts in collaboration with local partners, businesses, Danish/Chinese organisations, and RDAM students.
