Save the Date: Encore 26 - 28 May 2021


Classical:NEXT Encore is an online event series that expands on the physical annual gathering. It allows for cross-sector and cross-border conversations to take place throughout the year and offer more chances to connect, exchange, discover and grow collectively.

Encore returns at the end of May with a condensed programme of Meet Ups and Conference Sessions - and a special opportunity to meet the art music world's leading innovators. The three days will take a moment to reflect and bring to the surface conversations and discussions that are important to address at this particular time.

With no more than two sessions per day over the course of 3 days, Encore is a short and snappy temperature taking of the art music community. Whether you take a coffee, lunch or after work break, join Encore to find inspiration, generate ideas or simply engage with colleagues from all over the world. Each session is purposely scheduled between 13:00 - 15:30 GMT (find your time zone here) to allow representatives across North and South America, Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Asia to take part.

Wednesday to Friday
26 - 28 May 2021
