Rotterdam, The Netherlands | May 15, 2019 - May 18, 2019

Classical:NEXT was born out of the simple idea to bring the diverse scenes of classical music together and offer them a forum to exchange and develop new ways for classical and contemporary music. Since the first edition in 2012, about 3000 classical music professionals from more than 1000 companies and from over 40 countries have engaged with Classical:NEXT and made it into the world’s most important classical music meeting.

Sounds Australia is thrilled to be partnering with the Australian Music Centre in supporting Australian delegates at Classical:NEXT.

This year, get your Classical:NEXT off to the best possible start by meeting the artists and businesses that have literally come from the other side of the world. Presented by Sounds Australia and the Australian Music Centre, we cordially invite you join the Australian delegation for toastie breakfast and networking when the annual MEET THE AUSTRALIANS RECEPTION returns to STAND 20.

It’s your opportunity to get in early and meet the delegates who have travelled from the other side of the globe to be part of the Classical:NEXT experience. If you’ve never experienced an Australian style Vegemite & cheese toasted sandwich then you’re in for a real treat.
