Cooperation with other associations
The Carl Orff Foundation works in close cooperation with a number of associations.
The ›› ›Orff Centre Munich - This as a state institution for research and documentation which has undertaken a prominent role in the supervision of the archive and the encouragement of the musicological study of Orff´s life and works. The primary tasks of the Orff Centre include the supervision of the estate of Carl Orff, academic research into his oeuvre and biography, the issuing of publications and the organization of events (concerts, lectures, symposia and exhibitions). The Orff Centre provides an information centre for musical and theatre practice and for the media. The Orff Centre Munich was founded by a contract between the Bavarian State and the Carl Orff Foundation. Based on this contract the Orff Centre Munich is financially supported by the Carl Orff Foundation.
A similar close cooperation exists with the ›››Bavarian State Library, with which the Foundation has a deposit contract for all autographs of stage works by Carl Orff (with the exception of “Die Kluge”).
The Carl Orff Foundation works together with the International Orff Schulwerk Forum Salzburg which represents the centre of the network for international Orff-Schulwerk Associations and affiliated pedagogical institutions. The Orff Schulwerk Forum is financially supported by the Carl Orff Foundation.
