Closing Concert, Speeches and Innovation Award Presentation | Saturday, 28 May 2016 | 13:00 - 14:00 | Willem Burger Zaal

The closing of our fifth edition is an appropriate time for the Classical:NEXT team to take to the stage and reflect on the road travelled thus far, as well as our fellow travellers – the many partners and friends who have together created the Classical:NEXT movement. Jury-selected showcase artists New Piano Trio provide refreshment for the ears with three contrasting musical intermezzi.

In addition, the winner of the second Classical:NEXT Innovation Award will be announced, selected by a ‘peoples’ choice’ election from the eleven-strong shortlist. The Classical:NEXT Innovation Award was designed to place the spotlight on forward-thinking activities taking place around the world and this year's longlist boasted 30 nominees from eleven countries.

Join us for our Networking Farewell in the Willem Burger Foyer before the Closing itself begins, make use of the free buffet and drinks and cram in that little bit of extra networking before the event ends!
