Welcome to the ECCO Website
ECCO (European Contemporary Composers Orchestra) is an ECSA project dedicated to performing and promoting contemporary art music as well as reaching new audiences. It operates as a network of active ensembles, orchestras and young professionals, supporting the creative dialogue between composers and performers and offering young professionals the opportunity to develop their skills with ensembles experienced in performing contemporary music on an international level.
The ECCO concert, and other cultural projects organised by ECSA, aims at increasing the visibility of ECSA and all the issues connected to the status of contemporary music creators. The music being played at the ECCO Concerts is received via a call to all ECSA member societies and is carefully selected to reflect the cultural and aesthetic diversity of European art music in the 21st century. The concert series is taking place twice a year in various countries, which serves the circulation of new and older repertoires across European borders and helps promote Europe’s musical diversity.
