ECOS LABS’ NEW CALL
ECOS LABS’ NEW CALL
Sierra Espuña’s ECOS Festival invites young national and international Early Music groups to come to the Region of Murcia for its artistic residency program and ECOS Labs. Three groups will be selected and welcomed to the most emblematic enclaves of the Sierra Espuña Territory to live with other musicians, share music and deepen the shared commitment to the social challenges of the 21st century. The festival thus aims to promote lifelong and transversal learning for young and emerging musicians and is in line with the objectives set by the European Union for the Year of Skills in 2023.
The ECOS residency programme is a 7-day experience that will take place between September 2 and 11, 2023, thanks to the support of the University of Murcia.

The ECOS Labs are seminars in digital format, organised in collaboration with REMA (the European Network of Early Music), in which international festival programmers discuss and interact with ECOS emerging groups to address issues related to Early Music and its value in the 21st century. This year, the title is “The experience of the concert” and three seminars will be held that will deal with the role this topic occupies in the day-to-day life, concert formats and strategy of Early Music groups.
ECOS Labs are an opportunity for emerging groups to receive personalised feedback on their artistic/social project and to learn how to interact in the international Early Music market. The programmers participating in this edition will be announced in mid-June
