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.
