Whilst searching the Internet for items for my virtual catalogue, I often come across the unexpected, but all the more interesting because of that. Yesterday I found the minutes and working paper of the International Conductive Education Working Group, a group which I had not heard of.
This records the minutes of a meeting held during the World Congress in Hong Kong involving people from Austria, Germany, North America, Hungary and Hong Kong only. No British, Australian or New Zealand representatives.
A photo of those at the meeting heads the minutes.
These minutes are recorded under the European Conductors Association logo by Thorsten Gegenwarth and it was agreed that the ECA
who have drawn up the mission/vision statement, would co-ordinate the working group for the next three years. Perhaps the results of this working together will be presented at the next World Congress in Germany in 2013.
It will be interesting to see the outcome of this proposed co-operation and sharing and I will post any further information I find.
