Following the success of the latest edition, Cremona Musica will host again in 2018 its Media Lounge, a group of 40 journalists from all around the world, that will not just tell what is happening during the three days of the Fair but will also be among the protagonists, taking part in some events.
The Media Lounge, conceived by the South African musician and producer Andreas Kern, aims to share ideas and considerations among a group of professional music disseminators coming from all around the world and working in different fields (press, radio, TV, web) in order to develop new collaborations and projects. The evolution of journalism, the new formats, and the challenges faced by those that communicate classical music are just some of the topics that will enliven the Media Lounge.
All the members will have their space in the new “Media Lounge” room, a conference hall acoustically isolated, with around 80 seats, in the Padiglione 2.
The room is also hosting two public meetings of the Media Lounge members, scheduled on Friday 28 September and Saturday 29 September, at 10 am.
Media Lounge Meeting 1: "New formats, new media"
Friday 28, from 10 to 11.15, Media Lounge.
Media Lounge Meeting 2: “Global Association of Media Music Professionals"
Saturday 29, from 10 to 11, Media Lounge
The Media Lounge is also hosting many presentations of books and musical projects. The complete programme is available here:
This year the Media Lounge room is hosting two roundtables dedicated to music production and dissemination:
- “Fundraising and Audience building”, Saturday 29 September at 15:
- “Classical Radio Meeting”, Sunday 30 September at 10:
All the events taking place in the Media Lounge room will be broadcasted live on Facebook, on Cremona Musica’s Facebook Page.
