The 2018 eeemerging ensembles
12 emerging ensembles will be part of the eeemerging programme in 2018.
Among these 12 ensembles, 4 had been selected in September 2017 after taking part in an audition : Improviso, Cantoria, El Gran Teatro del Mundo and Le voci delle grazie. Rumorum won the eeemerging prize in International Young Artists Competition in York and L’Apothéose the Göttingen Handel competition, which gave them a direct access to the selection.
These 6 ensembles will each benefit from 2 residencies hosted by the 7 partners (Ambronay Cultural Encounter Centre in Ambronay, France – Music Centre of the National University of Music in Bucharest, Romania – Göttingen International Handel Festival in Göttingen, Germany – Ars Ramovš in Ljubljana, Slovenia – Ghislierimusica in Pavia, Italy – Riga Early Music Centre in Riga, Latvia and National Centre for Early Music (NCEM) in York, England), as well as 2 concerts, trainings in outreach, organisation, marketing, nutrition, artistic coaching and photo shootings. The ensembles have the opportunity to work together on their main artistic project and perform concerts. The end of their first support year is closed by the eeemerging Festival, which is held during Ambronay Festival in October.
During the 2017 eeemerging Festival in Ambronay on October 7th and 8th, the partners listened to the 6 enembles selected in 2015 and voted for 4 of them which are La Vaghezza, 4 times baroque, Il Quadro Animato and Concerto di Margherita. That means these ensembles will benefit from a second year of support.
PRISMA and Consone Quartet (first selected in 2015) will benefit from a 3rd year of support, including residencies, concerts and the recording of a CD in the Young Ensemble Collection of Ambronay Editions.
