MUSIC UP CLOSE Network – connecting orchestral music to young audiences is a multi-annual cooperation project. The Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia is the promoter and coordinator of a network with other prestigious European Orchestras and other organizations for training and international artistic mobility. The participating institutions consider this initiative as a pilot co-operation network to experiment and share new strategies and approaches to connect the orchestral music with youth audiences.

The project aims to carry out activities that primarily respond to the following priorities:

Cooperate with some of the best European Orchestras such as the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra, the Orchestre National de Lille, the Barcelona Symphony Orchestra, the Sarajevo Philharmonic Orchestra, the Montenegrin Symphony Orchestra and the Ljubljana International Orchestra to commission new orchestral works by living composers and support works and artists at European and international level.
Develop and share new strategies to reach young audiences in particular with some of the Balkan countries such as Slovenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Monteniger promoting musical co-productions with innovative formats involving youth orchestral ensembles also using digital technologies and other forms of art.
Enable professional training and education initiatives for young musicians to acquire skills to operate at an international level through the Professional Orchestral Training and Music Management Program in collaboration with Kulturno društvo BSA in Ljubljana. The Program offer to young musical talents selected internationally to acquire artistic experiences in a stimulating environment. It will be also implemented the Work Experience Exchange Program to provide professionals to make “professional experiences” in other European orchestral institutions and share their methodologies.
