    Classical:NEXT Classical music for young audiences

    During Classical:Next, Oorkaan will organise a session about reinventing the classical concert format.
    Since 2000, the Dutch organization Oorkaan creates high quality staged concerts for young audiences, performed by outstanding musicians. These staged concerts are presented in concert halls, theatres and festivals all over the world. For the creation of the productions, Oorkaan trains talented musicians in their performance and physical acting skills according to the Oorkaan Method.

    Together with Pascal Sticklies (senior education manager Philharmonie Luxembourg) and the audience, Caecilia Thunnissen (artistic director of Oorkaan) will address the following questions:
    Which is the best way to make live performed classical music accessible for young audiences? What kind of core values should we embrace while creating? What kind of skills are requested from the musicians and how can we train them in these skills? And is this also applicable to concert formats for adults and even a chance for innovation in the classical concert practice as a whole?

    The session is moderated by Maria Hansen, executive director ELIA, European League of Institutes of the Arts. The session will be held in De Doelen, in conference room 3.
