The EUBO Mobile Baroque Academy (EMBA) combines baroque music education and performance in new and creative ways. The EMBA project builds on the track-record of the European Union Baroque Orchestra (EUBO) in providing training and performing opportunities for young EU period performance musicians. The EMBA activities include specialist masterclasses by expert tutors; residential orchestral selection courses; touring opportunities with the training orchestra (EUBO); further development of skills in networking and in creating digital content (Academy Days); and professional development placements in European orchestras.

EMBA identifies areas where the playing field can be levelled in the early music sector and works to establish the following four ‘bridges’ to meet these needs:
1. North-South-East-West: to reduce the geographical divergence across
Europe in resources and opportunities
2. Performer – Audience: to create inspirational live experiences and engage audiences
3. Student – Professional: to equip young musicians with a portfolio of skills to enhance professional development
4. Live – Digital: to embrace new technologies to disseminate expertise, performances and resources

EMBA nurtures talent, maintains performance quality and encourages creativity and the mobility of artists and ideas.

The legacy of the EMBA project will be
• better-informed teachers and equipped institutions in the baroque sector
• a network of experienced and skilled musicians
• freely-available online resources
• wider audience geographical spread and age profile
• greater ability for Europe’s young musicians to access
• professional employment opportunities
