NCEM Hosts First Major Emerging European Ensembles Residency in the UK

The National Centre for Early Music (NCEM), one of the eight major partner organisations from across the European Community, welcomes the innovative young French ensemble, Les Contre-Sujets to York in November 2015 for the first residency in a four year programme funded by Creative Europe – the EEEmerging: Emerging European Ensembles project.

EEEmerging: Emerging European Ensembles, a large-scale European cooperation project promoting the emergence of new talent in early music led by the Centre culturel de rencontre d’Ambronay, France, brings the NCEM together with prestigious early music organisations in Slovenia, Romania, Latvia, Italy and Germany.

Les Contre-Sujets ends an action-packed 10 day residency with a concert on Saturday 5 December at 1.00pm at the NCEM as part of the York Early Music Christmas Festival.

During their stay the musicians will take part in specialist training sessions tailored to their needs, with senior arts administrators and musicians from Brighton Early Music Festival and The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment as well as Professors Peter Seymour, University of  York and John Bryan, University of Huddersfield. The ensemble’s baroque dancer, Guillaume Jablonka, who will perform The Four Nations programme with them on 5 December, will also work with Fanny Pouillot from the Northern School of Contemporary Dance in Leeds.

Delma Tomlin MBE, Director of the NCEM says: “We are delighted to welcome Les Contre-Sujets, one of 6 talented young ensembles selected for the first year of the EEEmerging project. This project provides excellent and clearly thought through opportunities to develop young artists, and specifically addresses the distinct lack of provision for young ensembles to spend time together learning the important skills of ensemble playing. It also provides essential formal support with learning how to organise and market their work in an increasingly competitive European market place.”

During their visit Les Contre-Sujets will also take part in an evening concert at the University of York in a double bill with the University Chamber Choir & Baroque Ensemble with Compagnia d’Istrumenti, directed by Peter Seymour on 2 December at the Sir Jack Lyons Concert Hall. They will also participate in a lunchtime concert at the University of Huddersfield on 3 December followed by a workshop with undergraduate music students.

Tickets for Les Contre-Sujets on 5 Dec at the NCEM, St Margaret’s Church, Walmgate, York YO1 9TL: Adults £12.00 (Concessions £10.00; Students £5.00) are available from the NCEM box office tel: 01904 658338 and online at www.ncem.co.uk.
