The Music Confucius Institute (MCI) has played an important role in promoting cultural exchanges between China and Denmark from its establishment in 2012 until its closing in 2020. 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 was to facilitate musical and cultural exchange between China and Denmark. By creating synergies between classical Western and Chinese musical traditions, MCI aimed to actively contribute to the future global development of music.
As an institute within RDAM, MCI worked with projects, that create and develop new relationships between Chinese and Western music culture. The institute organised activities, that included lectures, workshops, and concerts in collaboration with local partners, businesses, Danish/Chinese organisations, and RDAM students.
