eeemerging, a new European project to support young ensembles is announcing

24. 10. 2014
In our previous newsletter we have reported on the eeemerging partner's meeting in Ambronay and of first selection of young ensembles in the eeemerging that is under the Creative Europe programme co-financed by the European Commission. This time we present the main objectives of the project and we announce the first two winning young ensemble, which managed to get through the tough competition and assure themselves an additional year of support.
The process set in place by the eeemerging project aims to increase equality in the options open to young ensembles, give them excellent working conditions along with support and organisation for their projects, and help them to negotiate the realities of the early music market in Europe.
eeemerging aims to:
  • find, select and train the best emerging ensembles in Europe;
  • offer the ensembles specific trainings in organisation/administration, diffusion, marketing and communication, artistic coaching, staging, etc);
  • prepare them to enter the European marketplace through the creation of a network of places for training, residencies and diffusion;
  • help to promote the ensembles (production of an EPK, CD recording, press, photo session, etc.).
This support to ensembles will last from 1 to 3 years.
The 2014 laureates
For the program's launching in 2015, 2 ensembles among the 4 that were selected in 2014 will benefit from a second year of support in their professional development. The competition was stiff but they were chosen unanimously by the co-organisers, during the eeemerging festival on October 4th.

These ensembles are Seconda Pratica and Voces Suaves.
At the beginning of December, 6 new ensembles will be selected to participate in this program, among the 82 applications received. The already selected Dutch ensemble Seconda Pratica, which won first place in the co-organisers’ evaluation at the Festival eeemerging, will be performing in Slovenia on 5th and 6th December at the Grad and Rajhenburg Castles.
