Tenso Professionals Meeting

9-11 May  2012, Paris



For the third time, Tenso organizes its meeting for professional exchange in Paris, this time coinciding with the classical music trade fair Musicora (Palais Brogniart).


Social media technologies and mobile access to the Internet have become so much part of our everyday life that cultural institutions - just like traditional businesses - need to integrate them in their marketing communications strategy and redefine the scope of their marketing communications activities. The upcoming Tenso Professionals Meeting will focus on social media strategies and the mobile web. 


These issues will be explored during five presentations and panel discussions with invited speakers. These experts will address a number of issues: how to interest your audience and stakeholders and make them participate, using storytelling, virtual collaboration, guerilla tactics and more. The practicalities of the mobile web, self-created apps and more will be discussed and explained in detail.


Registration (includes international travel, two or three hotel nights, concert, one dinner, one lunch, registration for Musicora)

  • first representative of Tenso choir € 300
  • second representative of Tenso choir (if involved with publicity/ marketing) € 150
  • others (Europe) € 400
  • French residents € 150 (does not include travel)

Registration is limited to people working in the field of professional music in Europe and to two representatives from any given organization. Tenso reserves the right to limit participation to persons who are, in the opinion of Tenso, qualified to attend.

Do you know of inspiring examples of creative use of the social media to involve a community for a performing arts project - especially in contemporary music? 

Let us know! We are still working on our list of panelists. 


Month Year

looking back at Tenso Professionals Meeting 2011



What do classical music ensembles do to keep their music alive after and beyond concerts? Traditionally, ensembles have concerts recorded for radio broadcasting, and they make regular recordings to be released on cd's. Nowadays, only a few select ensembles can count on a cd company doing the work for them. On the other hand the costs of self-producing have fallen dramatically, making self-released recordings a feasible alternative for most ensembles. That raises the question: what is the best way to capture a performance, and to bring it to the public?  Tenso invited 10 panelists - experts from all over Europe - to address these questions and formulate possible answers.

Tenso receives its third EU Culture Programme granteugrant


The activities of Tenso Network Europe in 2012 and 2013 will be funded by a grant from the EU Culture Programme. This is the third grant that Tenso receives - we are delighted that the EU continues to support our mission to stimulate (professional) choral practice in Europe. Our proposal got maximum scores for 'European added value' and 'expected level of output', and scored high on other criteria.


The project will run from May 2012 to December 2013 and includes professional exchange, the launch of the Tenso Europe Choir for young professional singers, a workshop for young composers, Tenso Days in Mechelen and Marseille, and the further extension of the wiki on choral repertoire. Cappella Amsterdam (NL) is the coordinating partner of the project; all eleven current Tenso members and the Festival van Vlaanderen / Mechelen are cooperating partners.
