enCORE Classical – Lab for New Ways in Classical Music is JM International’s capacity building programme for young classical musicians who are ready to assume an active role in society and become ambassadors for classical music.
With a series of interactive conferences, the programme aims to inspire, support and empower the exploration of new ways in performing and communicating classical music, seeking contact and interacting with (young or new) audiences. The programme draws on non-formal, interactive learning approaches and peer-to-peer learning.
The participant candidates will be put forward by national JM member sections and ultimately selected by a panel composed of the members of the JMI Classical Music Committee and the Conference facilitators.
The main topic of the conference is innovation in concert design and performance, exemplified among others by study visit to a concert performance of the junge norddeutsche philharmonie in the Konzerthaus Berlin.
Two additional topics are: social activities through music and musicians’ self- and project management.
Speakers and trainers include Laura Hassler from Musicians without Borders, Karl Heinrich Wendorf from the Musikhochschule Hanns Eisler Berlin and Wojciech Walzcak, president of JM Poland. A practical task for the participants will lead to a self-designed joint performance in front of a test audience in the end of the conference.
