THE MUSICA CORONENSIS FESTIVAL (2003–)
Founded and organized with the support of the Embassy of Germany in Bucharest, the festival sets out to re-discover the musical values specific to Braşov: musicians, composers, instrument makers and musical institutions. The festival is conceived to combine these elements, thus reviving musical heritage and, at the same time, supporting both the creation of contemporary music and the artists of Braşov.
Unique documents and manuscripts of great significance in the history of Braşov are kept in the archives and library of the Evangelic-Lutheran Parish A.C. of Braşov. Photo: Frank-Thomas Ziegler
CATALOGUING AND SAFELY DEPOSITING THE HISTORICAL ARCHIVES AND LIBRARY (2005–2006)
The records of the archives and library of our parish have been cataloged and properly deposited as part of an ample project financed by both the European Union through its “Cultura 2000”- program and the British Library, through its “Endangered Archives” -project.

THE RUG CONSERVATION PROJECT (2009–)
The project – financed by the Federal Government of Germany, through its Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media, and by the German Federal Environmental Foundation (Deutsche Bundesstiftung Umwelt) – intends to preserve the collection of Ottoman rugs in Transylvania and elaborate solutions in order to safely exhibit and deposit these exquisite objects.
