The EECMS is initiating a collaboration platform between Cairo Contemporary Music Days, KLANG Festival of Copenhagen and Athelas Sinfonietta. The project is planned to take off April 2019. Several world premiers, masterclasses and networking opportunities are planned. A part from the Danish and Norwegian artists participating, a large scale of the collaboration will be focused on the Arab contemporary music.
“At Present” is an initiative by the Egyptian Contemporary Music Ensemble (ECME) planning to premiere over ten new compositions by Arab and European composers. It aims to preserve different aspects of Arab cultural heritage by reinterpreting them in a contemporary and relevant form empowering recent repertoire and bring the new compositions to regional and international festivals and venues.
