The European Chamber Music Master Programme

ECMaster partner institutions
Seven top European conservatoires and music colleges are joining together to create a Europe wide master programme in chamber music. The European Chamber Music Master Programme (ECMAster) launches next Autumn (2019) and will provide a two year programme for chamber music ensembles. There is nothing quite like the programme at the moment, Professor Linda Merrick (Principal of the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester (RNCM), one of the partners) comments that 'It is very much like a finishing school for ensembles, helping some of Europe’s top young chamber musicians make the final transition into the music profession'.  

Partcipants will spend two years, split between their home institution and two of the other partner institutions, thus giving the course a really international outlook. Students will thus be able to experience the expertise, culture and tradition of three separate institutions, and gain valuable access to a wider European network.The course is intended for established ensembles, with a standard instrument combination.

The partner institudions are the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester (RNCM), the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna (MDW), the Paris Conservatoire of Music and Dance (CNSMDP), the Fiesole School of Music in Italy (SMF), the Royal Conservatoire of The Hague (KC), the Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre (LMTA), and the Norwegian Academy of Music (NMH) in Oslo. The course is is an extension of the European Chamber Music Academy (ECMA), a collaboration between European music universities, conservatoires and festivals in the field of chamber music. Since its establishment in 2004, ECMA has been providing regular chamber music sessions, workshops and concert performances across Europe.
