Classical Futures Europe

Classical Futures Europe is an EU-funded programme to support young classical musicians’ opportunities for development while promoting creative initiatives for tomorrow’s music scene.

Classical Futures Europe is administered by the European Concert Hall Organisation (ECHO) which, through its 22 members, offers numerous opportunities for talented young classical musicians to grow. Supported by Classical Futures Europe, ECHO continually initiates new partnerships in classical music aiming to create appealing events for audiences and for gifted young musicians. 

Classical Futures Europe also makes it possible for Europe’s leading concert stages to explore together, both artistically and socially, the full potential of what an active and vibrant classical music scene means for musicians, concert stages, audiences – and ultimately, for a thriving, creative and productive social climate.

Thanks to Classical Futures Europe and support from the EU, many important projects have been able to be carried out at Konserthuset Stockholm.
