Vocal Jazz Professorship (HfMT)
In 2008 the Dr. E. A. Langner Foundation developed and financed the Professorship for Vocal Jazz at the University of Music and Theater (HfMT) in Hamburg. This financial engagement made it possible for the HfMT to successively create eight additional bachelor study places for the Jazz Department. In 2015, the HfMT will be receiving additional financial aid from the city’s government and the Vocal Jazz Professorship will be solely financed in the future by the HfMT. Subsequently, the contributions from the Dr. E. A. Langner Foundation will be invested in other new projects at the HfMT.
