Classical:NEXT was born out of the simple idea to bring the diverse scenes of classical music together and offer them a forum to exchange and develop new ideas around classical and contemporary – or in a wider sense – art music. That was in 2011 and we obviously h. Since then, around 2,000 art music professionals representing 1,000 companies from more than 40 countries have engaged with Classical:NEXT and made it into the world’s most important classical music meeting.
In 2015, I’ve been nominated to Classical:NEXT Innovation Award jury. « This award aims to give international recognition to the people who are doing the most to push things forward with daring yet intelligent, effective and successful “out-of-the-box” thinking, planning and action », says Jennifer Dautermann, Classical:NEXT Director. The winner will be announced on site at the closing ceremony of Classical:NEXT in Rotterdam on 23 May 2015.
