Die ERIK-SATIE-Gesellschaft - Internationale Vereinigung e.V. i.Gr.

Foreign Ministry, Berlin, Office of Franco-German Co-operation:

"I heartily welcome the foundation of the Satie Association. Erik Satie, who died 90 years ago and whose 150th birthday we will celebrate in 2016, incorporates as hardly any other modern composer the link between the Aventgarde and the common people. I wish you and all participants much success in the founding of the Satie Society

under the motto: Music can change people."

Michael Roth MP , Minister of State for Europe, 18th. August 2015
