The teachers of the masterclass will select the 15 participants who will form the European Hanse-Ensemble and will tour Hanseatic cities in the summer of 2020 under the artistic direction of Manfred Cordes. For those who will participate in the concerts, the course fee will be refunded and a daily rate will be payed for rehearsal and concert days. Resulting travel and accommodation expenses will be covered.
The specific concert programme for 2020 ( theme: festive music of the Hanseatic cities ) will be adapted to the structure of the ensemble, thus will be developed after the selection of the ensemble members. The goal is a balanced distribution of singers, string, wind and continuo players which will allow the performance of multi – choral works.
