Congratulations to RUMORUM who won the eeemerging project prize at the 2017  York Early Music International Young Artists Competition  .

The National Centre for Early Music is one of eight major partner organisations in the pan-European eeemerging  (Emerging European Ensembles) project, whose main aims are:
  • to find and select the most promising emerging ensembles in Europe
  • to offer them specialised training to help with the development of their careers
  • to offer them residencies in a network of different European countries
  • to arrange performances for a variety of audiences
  • to raise awareness, promote the ensembles and help them with marketing support
eeemerging is led by the Centre culturel de rencontre d'Ambronay, France and brings together Ars Ramovš, Ljubljana, Slovenia; Centre de musique ancienne de l'Université de musique de Bucarest, Romania; Centre de musique ancienne de Riga, Latvia; Ghislierimusica, Pavia, Italy; Internationale Händel-Festspiele Göttingen, Germany; Ozango Productions, Strasbourg, France; and the National Centre for Early Music in York, UK. They are supported by 37 international partners and six European professional networks. Eeemerging is supported by the Creative Europe programme.

eeemerging supports young ensembles in a four-year programme which promotes new talent in young professional early music ensembles. It aims to find and select the best emerging ensembles in Europe, to give them excellent working conditions along with support and organisation for their projects, and to help them understand the realities of the early music market in Europe. Each selected ensemble benefits from several periods of residency hosted by the eeemerging partners. The residencies are designed to give them time together to learn the important skills of ensemble playing as well as to support them with artistic coaching and training in outreach, organisation and marketing. Ensembles will receive support over a 1-3 year period.

The NCEM is host to six eeemerging residencies between 2015 and 2018:
Il Quadro Animato   May 2018
Concerto di Margherita   December 2017
Castello Consort  May 2017
The Goldfinch Ensemble  December 2016
Consone Quartet  May 2016
Les Contre-Sujets  December 2015
