The project aims to initiate and train small vocal ensembles specialized in early music – inside the frame of an international master. Students, teachers and prestigious artistic personalities from the partner institutions will have the opportunity to study/teach in Bucharest, Parma and Den Haag. Music events will be organized and performed by the newly formed early music small vocal ensembles, in a multicultural and European context.
The level of excellence of the VOXearlyMUS will be assured by the assessment and the selection of the participating students and by the prestige and the international range of the teachers/professionals involved. Creating an international consortium – having as founders the project’s partners – will guarantee the sustainability of the obtained results and will represent the institutional premise for making functional an international master for early music small vocal ensembles.
