The first European Day of Early Music is launched on 21 March 2013 in association with the European Early Music Network [REMA] and the National Centre for Early Music [NCEM].  Featuring concerts, conferences, and other events taking place simultaneously all over the continent - the day will be celebrated in the UK at the NCEM in York in the company of Robert Hollingworth and students from the University of York in a concert including works by JS Bach (whose birth date is 21 March) and his predecessors.  

Many of the events taking place across Europe will be available online, enabling audiences a unique opportunity to attend the first European Day of Early Music and participate in from the comfort of their own homes by enjoying concerts, interactive online discussions and masterclasses live online and free of charge.
