In Spring 2012, the Region of Emilia-Romagna, in Italy, will be the next „Musical Mecca“ of Europe and home of EMU’s XI European Youth Music Festival. The festival will create from 17 – 20 May, 2012., a meeting place full of concerts for 4500 young music enthusiasts from all over Europe. Emilia-Romagna, with his facinating and ancient cities and the sheer number of musical venues and activities, is astounding and contributes to one of the richest musical cultures in Europe. EMU’s General Assembly and Conference will be held from 15 – 18 May.
