EUBO is proud to announce that it has been selected to receive Creative Europe funding from the European Commission. The activities of EUBO during the period 2015 to 2018 will take place under the auspices of its new project, the EUBO Mobile Baroque Academy (EMBA), which will be organised by EUBO together with its nine partners. EMBA will nurture the performance of Europe’s distinctive shared heritage of baroque music, and the education of emerging Europe-wide talent, bringing baroque music to new audiences in innovative ways across Europe.
The activities of the new co-operation project, subtitled Pathways & Performance, will focus on music education and performance training. EMBA will provide a significant touring programme with its training orchestra EUBO under the direction of Music Director Lars Ulrik Mortensen and other renowned baroque music specialists. EMBA will also organise orchestral courses, interactive digital masterclasses, audience development events and a comprehensive digital programme ‘Baroque Bytes’ including live streamings and recordings of historically informed performances of baroque repertoire.
Student musicians are invited to take part in the first year’s activities by applying for a place at the Audition Courses which will take place in Luxembourg from 29 July to 1 August and from 1 to 4 August 2015. Further information on the courses is available at http://www.eubo.eu/EUBO/courses.
