Pop macht Schule Final Concert

09. May 2022

In autumn 2021 and spring 2022, the Popakademie Baden-Württemberg visited several schools in the metropolitan region with the project "Pop macht Schule". On 13 May 2022, the students will present their results at the final concert in the BASF Feierabendhaus. The evening is the joint final concert of 12 schools from the Popakademie's last two "Pop macht Schule" tours. Special guest is LEOPOLD. The main sponsor of the educational project is BASF SE.

Forming bands, managing bands, learning instruments and writing song lyrics - for two whole days in autumn 2021 and spring 2022, pop music was on the curriculum of 12 selected schools in the Rhine-Neckar metropolitan region. The aim of the project, which was initiated together with BASF SE, is to sharpen the young people's senses for a creative approach to pop music at an early age. Making music together also promotes the social skills of the participants.

At the big final concert on 13 May 2022 at the BASF Feierabendhaus, all participating students will experience what it feels like to breathe stage air in front of a large audience. LEOPOLD will be the musical guest. The Popakademie graduate stands for queerness and makes empowering indie pop.

The project "Pop macht Schule" (formerly "School of Rock") was awarded the Baden-Württemberg State Teaching Prize in 2009. In 2010, the "School of Rock" was awarded the title "Landmark in the Land of Ideas". The main sponsor BASF SE received the AKS Award of the Working Group for Cultural Sponsoring for its support. Due to its integrative effect, the project was included in the integration plan of the Federal Government.
