Classical:NEXT is an expo for worldwide music practitioners to exchange, observe, discuss and explore the new trend of music development. Programmes of Classical:NEXT include Conference, Expo, Project Pitch and Showcase, in which Showcase and Project Pitch are effective platforms to present and introduce outstanding music productions to international professionals. Each selected Showcase programme will have 30 minutes to perform, showcasing outstanding creations to practitioners from different countries. Selected Project Pitch will be offered a 9-minute slot to present the work, allowing programme buyers/organisers/curators to understand the content and touring requirements of the work.
The coming Classical:NEXT is scheduled to be held during 13-16 May 2020 in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. Hong Kong Arts Development Council (HKADC), who participated in Classical:NEXT in 2018 and 2019, is expecting to participate in the expo again in 2020. Classical:NEXT is now calling for proposals for Showcases and Project Pitches in 2020. Interested parties can submit proposals directly to Classical:NEXT’s organiser on or before 27 September 2019 (Friday). For details, please visit the official website of Classical:NEXT:

If a Hong Kong production is selected as the official Showcase or Project Pitch programme of Classical:NEXT 2020, depending on the situations (e.g. HKADC’s budget, content and scale of the selected production), HKADC may consider providing a partial or full support to the selected work.
