    Classical:NEXT 2018

    De Doelen and Dutch Performing Arts are promoting the classical and contemporary music scene at the Dutch Pavilion during Classical:NEXT 2018.
    The Dutch Pavilion is filled with representatives of ensembles, composers, publishers and festivals, as well as supporting and funding organisations. These organisations represent the whole spectrum of the classical and contemporary music sector. From 16 to 19 May you are welcome to visit all the delegates at the pavilion in de Doelen, Rotterdam.

    Classical:NEXT is the international conference for professionals from all branches of this music genre. The conference is being held at and co-produced by de Doelen concert and conference venue. Since the first edition in May 2012, around 2,000 music professionals representing 1,000 companies from more than 40 countries have engaged with Classical:NEXT and made it into the world’s most important classical music meeting, featuring a conference and expo, as well as showcases and screenings.

    For Thursday 17 and Friday 18 May, several programme and network activities have been organised, from matchmaking and speed dates up to meet & greets and international matchings. There will be networking receptions and Concertzender will broadcast live during the event.
