On 6 October 2020, the members of REMA, the European Early Music Network, took a historic decision to start welcoming all types of professional organisations active in the early music sector.
Since its founding in 2000, REMA has operated as a network of concert organisers – festivals and concert halls. While this clearly had its use and interest, for some years already REMA has been reaching out to the rest of the sector, partnering with networks such as the European Association of Conservatoires, and through events such as the European Early Music Summit that is due to take place on 20-22 November both online and at BOZAR in Brussels. This event is open to all professionals from the (early) music world.
By inviting new types of organisations, REMA will become a more representative voice for the early music sector as a whole, and enable more networking, lobbying, co-productions and discussions. Better knowledge of early music’s actors will be within reach. And questions around performance, concert organisation, research and performance, funding and administration will now find a natural forum involving professionals from all corners of the sector.
