The FAME’S European Orchestral Performing Institute is a three-year Creative Europe Cooperation project carried out by a partner consortium led by the FAME’s Project. The project addresses highly skilled young musicians in the field of orchestral music and focuses on giving the opportunity to participate in masterclasses, various orchestral practices, exploring new repertoires and performance styles (including music for film, media and gaming, crossover, digital components etc).

The main ambition of the project is to offer young talented European classical musicians an intensive orchestral work program implemented by the participants with physical participation in the training, mentoring, rehearsal, and performing sessions along with masterclasses. The project will take place in a dedicated professional studio, FAME’S, where the premises (rehearsing / recording stage) will be used as a meeting point for the artistic teams, conductors, professional musicians from the Western Balkans and selected European high potential musicians.

Aims and objectives

  • To create a hub accelerator and production platform to support the professionalization of the new generation of emerging European musicians.
  • To safeguard, develop and promote European cultural and linguistic diversity and heritage.
  • To develop a training / professionalization centre for young Europeans instrumentalists and to build professional and original orchestral music content aiming to reach new audiences in the digital transformation era.
  • To increase the competitiveness and the economic potential of the cultural and creative sectors, in particular the audiovisual sector.
  • Reinforcement of the resilience to allow the recovery of cultural operators in light of the COVID-19 crisis.
  • Innovation and joint creations: the Programme will support operators to develop innovative European projects to allow the evolution of the cultural and creative sectors and to increase their competitiveness.
  • Co-production, cooperation, learning and connection of organisations of all sizes.
  • Capacity building of artists: the Programme will help European artists and cultural and creative professionals move up to the European level by supporting (emerging) talents and skills development.
  • Inclusion, diversity, and gender equality. Projects should facilitate access to European cultural and creative content for all groups and audiences.
