It is Classical:NEXT's goal and mission to be a meeting place for all those dealing professionally with classical music, with the ambition to cover the whole range from creative art to music business and from media to education. Classical:NEXT hosts a major event once a year which is both trade fair and a conference.

Further establishing contacts between AEC and Classical:NEXT is expected to be of mutual benefit for both partners. AEC members might gain increased access to networks in the music industry. On the other hand, Classical:NEXT's representatives and attendees, can connect directly with the world of conservatoires and music universities.

Classical: NEXT 2019 will be held in Rotterdam from 15 to 19 May, offering amongst others a set of sessions to bring Higher Music Education and the Music Industry closer to each other. Details will be published closer to the event. Save the dates and learn more about Classical:NEXT:
