Centre Européen de Musique

The Centre Européen de Musique (CEM) is a musical, educational, scientific and cultural initiative of a kind never before seen in Europe. Designed, created and driven by Jorge Chaminé, the CEM aims to become a crossroads of the arts, humanities, sciences and generations. It will thus celebrate music as a universal language at the heart of Europe’s identity and humanistic values. The vast estate will house a number of new buildings dedicated to higher education, transmission and interdisciplinary exchanges in the field of music. The CEM will quickly offer a rich programme of recitals, concerts, operatic performances, conferences, artist residencies and masterclasses. It will also host an intergenerational residence and a laboratory dedicated to research on the connection between music and the brain. Under the impulse of France’s President, government, local authorities and European institutions, the CEM aims to take up the challenges of the 21st century by upholding values of togetherness and sustainable development.
