The 8 eeemerging co-organisers selected 6 ensembles to join the eeemerging program in 2016 for a first year of support.
Among 47 applications received, 14 ensembles have been auditioned in September and 4 have been selected : Prisma, I Discordanti, Goldfinch Ensemble and The Curious Bards.

Consone Quartet and Nexus Baroque won the eeemerging prize during the York Early Music Festival in July and therefore had been directly selected.
