Deadline Monday 15 May 2023
Location: World Wide Web
This call for applications addresses young ensembles (above all piano trios and string quartets, but also other formations) that already perform at a professional level. Intensive and continuous in-depth artistic work can only be accomplished by participating as consistently as possible at the available ECMA sessions (7 sessions per academic year). Willingness to regularly attend the sessions scheduled by ECMA is therefore essential in order to be accepted!
In addition to a successful audition, it is necessary to participate in 2 (min.) or 3 (max.) ECMA sessions within a single academic year. This preparatory phase can be completed as guest or as a nominated ensemble either before or after your audition. Only following completion of these two steps will you
receive a definitive decision on admission to ECMA.
