Middle East Classical Music Academy – 3rd Edition Launch
Anne Vallayer-Coster, Attributes of Music, 1770
In February 2024, the Middle East Classical Music Academy will be returning to the UAE to celebrate its third edition. Following two universally-acclaimed entries in 2021 and 2022, this latest iteration in the Academy’s short yet rich history looks to build on these foundations to create a unique experience for talented young musicians across the breadth of the MENA region, and beyond.
Taking place from the 1st to the 16th of February, MECMA 2024 is targeted towards youth orchestras from all over the world, providing these ensembles with an unrivalled opportunity to study, practice, and grow together both on an individual level and as a group. Throughout its two-week duration, the Academy shall feature a series of masterclasses in 5 different categories – namely violin, cello, saxophone, clarinet, and conducting – each of which will be led by a host of internationally-acclaimed pedagogues and professors.
