NEW The European Early Music Summit will take place entirely online, as the new safety regulations in Brussels do not allow BOZAR to welcome you all in optimal conditions.
REMA – European Early Music Network is organising an international Early Music Summit between 20 and 22 November 2020 in partnership with BOZAR, Brussels. REMA is a pan-European network, supported by the EU’s Creative Europe programme, which represents c.90 of Europe’s most prestigious Early Music Festivals.
Under the title Our Future Past: Early Music in Context, the conference will assess and take a critical look at the current state and future of Early Music in respect of performance, education, research, instrument-making, musicology, and concert promotion. As well as keynote speeches, panel debates, Q&A sessions, and parallel forums covering a variety of thematic strands, there will be an Early Music Fair, poster sessions on groundbreaking research topics, live music performances, and Showcase concerts exploring innovative presentations given by young international ensembles.
