European Day of Early Music 2017

Celebrate the fifth European Day of Early Music with SEMF!


March 21 2017 throughout Europe marks the celebration of the fifth edition of the European Day of Early Music, launched by an initiative from SEMF and coordinated by REMA. The event enjoys the patronage of the European Commission and is a cooperation with the European Broadcasting Union (EBU). 

On March 21st, the beginning of spring and Johann Sebastian Bach's birthday, concerts, conferences and other events related to early music are held around Europe with the purpose of increasing the awareness about the diversity of a shared historical musical heritage. Several of these events are available for a broad audience via online live-streaming.

In Stockholm, SEMF is offering a uniquely compiled concert. ”Sacred Treasures”, with known and new discovered music from the Düben Collection (works by Buxtehude, Vesi, Tunder and di Lasso), is presented in The German Church (Tyska kyrkan) at 7 pm and broadcast live through Swedish Radio as well as EBU.

In cooperation with WDR, SR, EBU, Uppsala University Choral Centre and The German Church
