The Academy of Camerata Europaea offers residencies to upcoming young musicians as well as renowned artists with special concert series. Especially young, talented artists are supported by getting the chance to present themselves artistically and collect creative experiences. The support programme includes two types of residencies, one for composers and one for artists. Additionally, unique artists will be put into focus and presented as 'Composer/Artist of the Month'.
'Composers in Residence' | 'Composer of the Month'
Each year, Camerata Europaea offers young as well as prestigious composers the opportunity to join the CE Academy's 'Composers in Residence' support programme. The residencies aim to call attention to excellent European composers and promote promising young talents. Their works will be performed on major European and international stages. The composers are given commissions to bring new works, presenting them by the CE-Ensembles to a wide audience. It is also planned to document the works in recordings. Additionally, unique composers are chosen on a regular basis and presented as 'Composer of the Month'.
'Artists in Residence' | 'Artist of the Month'
Each year, Camerata Europaea offers young as well as prestigious artists the opportunity to join the CE Academy's 'Artists in Residence' support programme. Artists and young soloists apply to perform with the CE-Ensembles on major European and international stages. Program highlight is invariably a solo performances by alternating musicians with the CE-Ensembles, either under the direction of Camerata Europaea's chief conductor Maria Makraki, or of a guest conductor. The Artists in Residence programme provides artists with the opportunity to perform works by different genres, such as music, visual arts, or acting. CE backing and invitations by such institutions as galleries, museums, artists' residences, colleges, or universities enable artists to enter into active exchanges with actors from different cultural and regional backgrounds or origins. In addition, unique artists are presented in special events as 'Artist of the Month'. Both programmes facilitate the exposure to new ideas and offer an opportunity to gain practical experience. Aims of the programmes also include the chance to make new contacts, which could prove useful for the artist's future creative work. In this way, the programme aspires to establish an international artistic network of participant artists and countries.
