CE inspires! Based on our recent approach, we not only focus on European music, but also on the connection between different genres by merging music and art. Within the Camerata Europaea (CE) programmes, music, art, culture, and lifestyle each find their own and unique place.

By emphasizing the cultural dialogue we facilitate the access to art and music in our daily lives. The diverse events take the audience on an experimental and innovative journey through European cultures and artists, which enrich our lives with their charism and take an influence on our environment, are portrayed.  

Additionally, our calendar now presents – next to the CE-concerts, which are committed to the issues addressed by the 2014-2020 European Agenda for Culture – selected events with European contexts. more

Camerata’s Europæa (CE) cultural project under the motto 'Odyssey' elaborates on the deeper meaning of human life. What is it that supports the human soul when it comes to the sudden twists and turns of life? The answer has the power to heal us from anguish and enormous pain and it becomes a compass for the return to Ithaca of our heart.
