Unfortunately, due to the sanitary crisis, the Escola Superior de Música de Lisboa and the Festival d’Aix regret to announce the cancellation of the Lisbon session. All applications received will of course be kept and reconsidered for the selection of participants for future sessions.

Despite the end of containment, Portugal continues to face a generally difficult context, particularly in the cultural field. We tried everything we could these last weeks in order to postpone and maintain this session with our partner at the Escola but the difficult circumstances do not allow any possibility of postponement.

Cancelling this session means depriving the participants from the creative session with Fabrizio Cassol and local artists from the ESML among other major musicians, from a professional coaching session on career development with Christiane Louis, and from meeting local audiences during outreach actions, and the concerts planned at the end of the session. The Medinea member’s partnership meeting, as well as the next Medinea Series shooting are also consequently cancelled.

We are doing our best for the next activities and events to happen and will keep you updated as soon as we can.

While waiting to have more information to provide on the next steps, we assure you of our availability. We are committed to doing everything in our power to help our artists, partners and collaborators. We remain available online for any questions or information and we will be happy to help you as much as we can.

If any information needed, do not hesitate to contact the session’s production manager, Élodie Ughetto (e-mail: elodie.ughetto@festival-aix.com) nd to keep up to date with the next dates to follow, you can follow us on the social networks on Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and subscribe to our newsletter.
