CEBEF in EU Project for Promotion of #SINERGY Classical Music

|||| |||| ||||


Festival Tour with 12 Composers and over 50 Young Musicians The Belgrade Festivals Centre – CEBEF has become part of a ‘#Synergy’ regional project to promote classical music, supported by the European Union, thus entering into close cooperation with the most eminent festivals in the region, such as the Dubrovnik Summer Festival, KotorArt Don Branko's Music Days, Ljubljana Festival and other festivals. In this way, the ‘synergy’ of performers, composers and cultural managers throughout the region began. The cooperation agreement was signed by the acting director of CEBEF Damir Handanović.
From 2021 to 2023, the project will bring together 12 composers, over 50 young musicians and cultural managers, organise six seminars for cultural professionals, 12 ‘music camps’ for composers in which 12 new works will be created inspired by the cultural heritage of the region as well as Europe. As the grand finale of the project, a festival tour is planned to feature composers, new compositions and young musicians during summer festivals across the Western Balkans.
Supported by the European Commission's ‘Creative Europe’ programme, the project ‘Synergy: Improving the Capacity of the Classical Music Industry in the Western Balkans’ arose from the desire to strengthen international cooperation and present local heritage and artists at the same time, which further contributes to the development of art music in this part of Europe.
This project brings together for the first time some of the largest art music festivals in the region, such as the Dubrovnik Summer Festival, KotorArt Don Branko's Music Days, Ljubljana Festival, the festival organized by the Belgrade Festivals Centre, Vox Baroque in Tirana and Chopin Piano Fest Pristina.
The goals of the project are to train and connect cultural workers, primarily those involved in festivals and art music, then to encourage composing new works of classical music inspired by local heritage, as well as to connect young musicians, composers and organizations involved in art music in the Western Balkans and establish collaboration between them.
