Eeemerging+ is a European scale project addressed to new ensembles working in the field of early music and was created with the aim of promoting and enhancing young talents and facilitating their inclusion in the music scene.

As part of eeemerging+, the ensembles are hosted in artistic residencies at the project’s partner structures and, in addition to performing musical activities and concerts, they also participate in meetings and workshops to improve their organisational, communication and project development skills. In this way eeemerging+ accompanies the growth of musicians in the round, facilitates their circulation in Europe and their entry into the early music market.
