Are you a young and upcoming Chamber Music Ensemble and looking for inspiration, tips and tricks to develop your career? 

ECMA – European Chamber Music Academy invites you to the launch of the unique online platform: ECMA Digital Knowledge Centre of Teaching Chamber Music – a wealth of material to develop your career as a chamber music ensemble on Friday, 28 June 2024 – 18.00-19.00 GMT +3 via Zoom and on the spot at LMTA Karosas Hall-Vilnius, Lithuania with Johannes Meissl (Artistic Director ECMA), Karla Haltenwanger (pianist), Roberto Becerra (LMTA, Vilnius) and many more.

The online platform aims to support young Chamber Music Ensembles to start their careers and has been developed by the ECMA community within the EU-co-funded project ECMA Pro – International Career Development and Socially Engaged Outreach in Chamber Music. 

The ECMA Digital Knowledge Centre of Teaching Chamber Music is an initiative dedicated to enhancing the education and performance of chamber music. It serves as a comprehensive resource for musicians, educators, and students, offering access to a wealth of digital materials. This innovative platform aims to foster a deeper understanding of chamber music, promote best practices in teaching, and support the development of high level musicianship. By leveraging digital technology, the ECMA Digital Knowledge Centre connects the global chamber music community, enabling the exchange of knowledge and expertise across borders.

ECMA – European Chamber Music Academy: After passing an audition for a jury representing ECMA and including the ECMA artistic directors Johannes Meissl, Patrick Jüdt and Minna Pensola, the ensembles undergo a two-year advanced education program comprising several one-week sessions and further activities. The ensembles receive intensive mentoring and inspirational input from distinguished lecturers in the context of the different regional and national cultural backgrounds, traditions and current developments within the ECMA community. ECMA Pro is an EU-co-funded cooperation project tackling career development and socially engaged outreach in chamber music. 

Over the course of four years (2020-2024), twelve partner institutions join forces to further develop the European Chamber Music Academy (ECMA).
