Pitch: Otherwise!

Pitch your program for the upcoming edition


For the upcoming edition (‘Variations’ 13-17 May 2020) Classical Encounters challenges all ensembles and students from the classical music departments to come up with a pitch for a short program (30-40 minutes) matching the 2020 festival theme ‘Variations’.

Under the motto ‘Pop Out!’ we dare you to propose an original programme that has a form of ‘variation’ included or hidden in it. Anything is conceivable: works with theme & variations movements, improvisation (baroque, jazz or otherwise), variations in instrumentation, make or commission your own arrangement, search for variation in the composition-style of the composer or develop a way of presentation that has variation as an important element, etc etc

The most original ideas and most suitable concepts will be honoured with a performance in the festival. Fee €125,- per person.
