After a COVID19 break the topic edition of ClassicalNEXT will get real in Hannover (Germany) from May 17 to 20. Recently Classical:NEXT has revealed the second part of the interactive Conference Programme, following the first programme release. The C:N team believes that collaboration is the way to the future and hopes to contribute to a greater understanding and cooperative spirit through the platform that Classical:NEXT provides, especially in these challenging times.


Within Classical:NEXT, the conference formats are the best setting for exchange and discourse. Compared to previous editions, it is striking that this year will reinforce and deepen questions on social issues and a sustainable music ecosystem. The Conference will focus on themes such as inclusion, equal access, the representation of female and non-Eurocentric perspectives, sustainability, digitalisation/new technologies and the crisis as an opportunity for change.
