Promotion of Young Talent

The promotion of young talent has been of special concern of Gertrud Huber for many years. She was the national youth consultant for the German Zither Association (Deutscher Zithermusik-Bund e. V.) and an examiner for the Association of German Music Schools (Verband deutscher Musikschulen). She organized courses in New Music and popular music that are especially designed for young people.

Competitions: Awards and Jury Memberships

At the beginning of her career, Gertrud Huber received the first national award in the competition "Jugend musiziert" (Youth plays music) in the division "zither solo" as well as a prize for young competitors in the folk competition "Zwiesler Fink". Her composition "Erratisches Volksspiel in a dutzend Bildern – Ein augüstliches Zinnenglühen" brought her first prize in a composer’s competition held in Landro, Italy.

She has repeatedly sat on the jurys for the national and international competitions.
