| DO YOU HAVE AN IDEA THAT COULD SHAPE |
THE FUTURE OF CLASSICAL MUSIC?
JM International invites young classically trained musicians from around the world, between the ages of 18-30, to submit their candidature and ideas to the enCORE Accelerando 2023.
The enCORE Accelerando is a global youth-music meetup created by JM International (www.jmi.net), which aims to identify, support and promote ideas and projects that focus on uncovering new ways in classical music from around the world.
The enCORE Accelerando is an event full of fun, learning and sharing, where participants will have the chance to connect with other young music changemakers from around the world and put their ideas to the test, receiving guidance from industry professionals, who will help them shape their projects.
At enCORE, you will have the opportunity to work on, pitch and develop project ideas (in teams or solo) through workshops that will help you shape your ideas into concrete projects. During the event you will undergo training in modules related to project and financial management, fundraising and communications, all the while being supported by mentors who will help you take your ideas to the next level. Each project team will have the chance to pitch their idea to a professional jury, who will award the best 3 projects with a microgrant of €1000 each, turning your dreams into reality! The winning project will also receive further training, support and promotion throughout the following year by JM International.
Selected enCORE participants will also have the opportunity to participate in the “Bach to the Future” conference, aimed to connect and inform institutions and related professionals about the upcoming trends in the classical music field to keep up with all the rapid changes of the digital era and be inspired by new methods and best practices from all around the world. Participants will have the opportunity to network with industry stakeholders and experience top-level sessions by industry thought leaders.
