The third edition of EDEM 

On 21st March 2015, the third edition of the European Day of Early Music will be celebrated all over Europe, coordinated by REMA. While the first edition of this celebration in 2013 was supported by Androulla Vassiliou, member of the European Commission, the 2014 event was held under the patronnage of UNESCO.

On 21st March, the first day of spring and birthday of Johann Sebastian Bach, concerts, conferences and other events in several countries will bring awareness on the diversity of the European historical musical heritage. A number of these events will be available to wide audiences through online live streamings. The project is also realised in collaboration with the European Broadcasting Union (EBU).

 

Saturday 21 March 2015

 
 
The successful concept from last year will be repeated and for the second time in Swedish history will the Central Station Stockholm be filled with early music during an entire day! The third edition of European Day of Early Music will be celebrated Saturday 21 March with a performance every half hour between 10 AM och 5 PM. A number of Swedish early music musicians and artists will appear on stage and several organizers from the early music industry will be in place. Don't miss this opportunity, stop for a moment and listen when you are on your way to or from work! This will also be the release day for tickets concerning the XIV SEMF summer festival (3-7 June 2015) - take the opportunity to book your SEMFestival pass or tickets for your favorite consert, en passant! 
European Day of Early Music on Central Station Stockholm is an arrangement by Stockholm Early Music Festival in cooperation with REMA (European Early Music Network), EBU (European Broadcasting Union) and under the patronage of UNESCO
European Day of Early Music will be streamed live through REMA.
