Classical:NEXT presents artists and ensembles from around the world that push the boundaries and extend the horizons of art music.
The Showcase Festival features a live concert series of artists and productions across different formats, providing a unique opportunity to experience a number of performances in a short amount of time.
The Festival is comprised of Evening Showcases, Club Showcases and DJs with performances at the Opening Night and Innovation Award ceremony.
The Call for Proposals for the Showcase Programme 2022 has been closed.
The Classical:NEXT Showcases are selected by an international jury of experts to present a wide range of high-quality artists and productions in every category from early to contemporary, traditional to experimental. Soloists and small ensembles as well as large ensembles, opera productions or musical theatre projects can be presented through a showcase concert.
These four late-night showcases offer the chance to see outstanding NEXT artists perform at Cumberland in an intimate and relaxed atmosphere, together with Classical:NEXT DJs on Wednesday and Thursday night.
A new format comes to Classical:NEXT 2022: The Pop Up Stage will present artists and projects outside of the usual concert setting in a relaxed, interactive atmosphere. The Pop Up Stage is located in the upper foyer of the Classical:NEXT Showcase Venue Schauspielhaus Hannover.
