Classical:NEXT – the global gathering for all art music professionals – was born out of the simple idea: to bring the diverse scenes and sectors of classical music together and offer them a forum to exchange and develop new ideas. That was in 2011. Since then, around 5,000 art music professionals representing 2,500 companies from 60 countries have engaged with Classical:NEXT. In this network meeting, WOMEX attendees who are active in or want to engage with variations on the western classical music theme will meet and discuss today’s burning issues and tomorrow’s paths forward. A first step to become an active part of an international network, sharing the same passion for art music, shaping the future of this art form together.
