Our Café Bauhaus programme nurtures projects developed by current and recent EUYO musicians that touch upon themes current in today's society - such as sustainability, climate change, diversity, access to arts and culture, equity and inclusion.
EUYO offers the selected projects seed funding, help in finding suitable partners, advice, guidance and support, with the projects selected via an open call.
We've just selected the two projects for 2023, and can now announce them as The Cordelia Piano Tri, based in Vienna and Ranværing ut på musikkalsk tur in Norway. You can read more about each project below
The Cordelia Piano Trio, Arevik Ivanyan (violin), Lucija Pejković (cello), and Karolina Pancernaite (piano), presents Collab, a project aimed at engaging audiences in a unique and interactive way by creating accessible, multi-sensory experiences.
The trio believes that classical music concerts face challenges due to their lengthy duration, high ticket prices, and the need for a particular kind of focus, making the experience less inviting for younger audiences and those who are new to the art form. Collab looks to address these challenges by collaborating with local Viennese painter Philipp Doboczky, creating a painting on stage in real-time, reflecting the music being performed. The goal is to encourage the audience to actively engage with the music, and to expand your imagination of the music in terms of colour, shape, and form.
The project will take place at three venues in Vienna, the Arnold Schönberg Center, Gesellschaft für Musiktheater, and Brick-15. These have been specially selected for their intimate performance spaces, which allow for a closer connection to the music, and history of combining different art forms. There will also be a family-oriented performance with an invitation for children and their parents to participate in the live painting experience.
Each concert will last no longer than one hour and entrance is free with the opportunity to donate if you wish.
Ranværing ut på musikalsk tur is an interdisciplinary project devised by Anna Mędzkiewicz (viola) to further enrich the cultural life of the town of Mo i Rana in Northern Norway. Through collaborations with local and regional professional musicians, artists, poets, and dancers, Anna will draw parallels between the town’s history and how classical music developed during the same period.
Mo i Rana history spans time from its early days as a trading post, to an era as an industrial powerhouse centred around its ironworks, to its present role as a modern mini metropolis. Concerts will take place in significant locations around the town celebrating this varied past including the waterfront sculpture which symbolises the identity and solidarity of the local community, and right in the heart of the modern industrial workplace with lunchtime concerts to ignite a curiosity among everyday workers.
