CAMERATA EUROPÆA (CE) encourages the dialogue between European countries through the universal language of music, offering insight into the cultural treasures of Europe today. The European motto Unity in Diversity can hardly be so well observed and understood as within the culture of classical music. CE explores together with its audiences the extraordinary diversity and depth of European culture, while celebrating the ideals of harmony and unity, which will always be the essence of the EU. more

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 Europæa (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, who 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  European Agenda for Culture – selected events with European contexts. more

The Camerata Europæa (CE) presents as a part of its annual program 2021, a cultural project under the motto ‘Odyssey‘, honoring forms of classic art and fusing them with various future tendencies and trends into an innovative program. The artistic series Camerata Experimental, Camerata Mobile and the Festival of Culture serve as the tools for bringing the motto’s deeper meaning closer to the European audience.

Interview with conductor Maria Makraki: Gender parity takes time and political support

Elias Canetti remarked decades ago: 'There is no more vivid expression of power than the activity of a conductor.' Conducting is still mostly a male domain.
