Proposals for 2017
Classical:NEXT again conducted it annual hunt for the best and brightest in art music. To offer an exceptional programme, Classical:NEXT assembles a handpicked selection of artists, speakers and projects each year. Therefore, we are calling for outstanding “NEXT” artists, projects, future-oriented topics and interactive conference formats from all corners of the classical music world whether that be early, contemporary, traditional or experimental.
Classical:NEXT is “by the community, for the community”: the programme is created by classical music professionals. All movers, shakers and everyday innovators from all sectors of the scene are invited to submit their proposals for the showcases and the conference.
All proposals will be considered by an independent jury of international experts – guaranteeing a neutral and balanced selection of only the best showcases and most pressing conference topics for Classical:NEXT 2017.

Propose Your Content…
The ideal format for soloists and small ensembles to present their new repertoire, new approaches and/or new concert formats. Come perform in front of the Classical:NEXT delegates representing all areas of the industry including music presenters, media and venues. For 2017, showcase artists are sought for evening performances in various settings in de Doelen and for the closing event.
- Club Showcase:
Come perform in a club style surrounding in order to break the Classical norms. After the sun goes down on Thursday, 18 May and Friday, 19 May, musical adventures start up in intimate, casual surroundings. International soloists, small ensembles and DJs are sought, experts of excellence in crafting club-compatible soundscapes of the classically-inclined.
Take your topics, projects and passions and design an interactive session to transfer hands-on know-how to or find new solutions with the Classical:NEXT delegates.
- Project Pitch:
Project Pitches are quick-fire, 9-minute presentations including video and Q&A. This format is ideal as a cost and time-effective way to inform the international music community about your artistic project, a large ensemble or staged production using your most attractive video material and your powers of persuasion.
