ECMA was founded in 2004 at the initiative of Hatto Beyerle. It is an association of European music universities, conservatoires and festivals in the field of chamber music that, together, provide ongoing training for chamber music ensembles. Within this programme, the partner institutions host regular sessions (lasting one week each; seven or more weeks per year). Renowned tutors work intensively with the ensembles, imparting to them new impulses for their artistic work.
