The three-day event took place in Trieste on 16-18 October at Music Conservatory “Giuseppe Tartini” and focused on the exchanges between representatives of institutions and music festivals of the Central European area, promoting active participation, and giving the possibility to lay the foundations of a system of cooperation among academic and professional institutes. 
The gathering’s main goal – among others – was setting music as a cornerstone in young people's education and a key feature in the life of citizens of a modern, enriched Europe, when performer and audience are brought close together through concerts.
High education and production of musical events are the major objectives of the cooperation launched a year ago with the establishment of the Central European Music Academies Network (CEMAN) in order to implement joint initiatives and pursue common goals.
CEMAN brings together academies and conservatories from Albania, Austria, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Italy, Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia and Ukraine. 
The concerts will be held at selected locations in order to contribute to promoting cultural and sustainable tourism, thus enhancing local traditions and natural heritage.

This event was co-funded by the CEI Cooperation Fund.
