First Programme Announcement

C:N 2022 First Programme Announcement

We are delighted to reveal the first components of the Classical:NEXT 2022 Programme! An international jury has selected the most promising and innovative ideas for this year's edition.

Over the coming weeks, we will gradually announce the full programme, beginning with a first selection of Evening Showcases and Conference Sessions.

Since the Classical:NEXT programme consists of jury-selected submissions from the global art music community, its current leading spirit is reflected in all programme parts. From the Showcase Festival to the Conference Sessions, from the Opening to the Innovation Award, this year we observe a clear focus on subjects of inclusion, fair access, questions of gender as well as the representation of marginalised and non-Eurocentric perspectives. Compared to past editions, it is striking that the Classical:NEXT programme will reinforce and deepen questions on social issues and a sustainable music ecosystem.
