Classical:NEXT Fellowship Programme for Composers 2019

Call for ECSA members

Classical:NEXT Fellowship Programme for Composers 2019
15-18 May 2019, Classical:NEXT Rotterdam (The Netherlands).
In collaboration with ECSA, Dutch Composers Association Nieuw Geneco will host the new Classical NEXT Fellowship Programme for Composers. The Programme gives composers a chance to take part in the international platform for exchange, debate & collaboration Classical:NEXT provides.

Each composer is paired with a Classical:NEXT-insider, who will introduce the composers to the community (and vice versa), bringing them into personal contact with relevant individuals and organizations as well as exchanging knowledge. A team of music professionals (publishers, programmers of venues, festivals) will do the matchmaking.

The CNEXT Composers Programme offers:
-Registration for Classical:NEXT, including all events, trade fair, conferences, showcases and incl. coffee/tea and lunch
-Composers Meeting at CNEXT
-Connection to music professional and CNEXT insiders
-Matchmaking and speed date sessions
-Friday Network reception at Codarts Music University (next door)
-Composers Pool for Conferences; we will send the bio’s to relevant conference makers. From this versatile pool of composers present, the chairs of the various conferences can pick relevant panellists.
