European Summer Music Academy
Western Balkans Youth Orchestra
Due to the Corona situation, neither the European Summer Music Academy (ESMA) nor the Western Balkans Youth Orchestra could operate in 2020 as planned. Physical meetings to make music together were impossible in 2020.
In order to maintain the momentum and offer the young musicians of the Western Balkans an opportunity to make music together even in these difficult times, Artium Eudora, the supporting NGO behind both initiatives, started the project Building Musical Bridges in autumn 2020. This allowed a virtual cooperation, there were online master classes and online recordings and assembly of some concert pieces. See videos.
