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. We’ll be serving up some traditional Vegemite and cheese toasted sandwiches and mimosas for breakfast while you meet with the Australian delegation. It’s happening at Stand 20, De Doelen International Congress Centre, on Thursday 17th May.

Come and meet the following delegates:

Matthias Schack-Arnott (Classical:NEXT 2018 Fellow)
Aura Go (Classical:NEXT 2018 Fellow)
Alex Raupach (Canberra International Music Festival)
Andrew McKeich (Select Audio -Visual Distribution)
Elaine Chia (City Recital Hall – Sydney. Australia)
Emma Calverley (Creative Partnerships Australia)
Genevieve Lacey (Australian Music Centre)
Marshall McGuire (Melbourne Recital Centre)
Roland Peelman (Canberra International Music Festival)
Tamara Saulwick (Chamber Made)

Following the reception we will be heading upstairs to see Australian pianist and sound designer Belle Chen perform. Belle is the first Australian to showcase as part Classical:NEXT. Her performance is at 12:00pm, Eduard Flipse Zaal (first floor), De Doelen International Congress Centre.
