Europska platforma klasične gitare

EuroStrings je prva europska platforma klasične gitare koju su osnovali Zagreb Guitar Festival i muzička škola Bonar 2017. godine. Platforma trenutno okuplja 17 europskih festivala klasične gitare.

Eurostrings program razmjene

Glavna aktivnost projekta EuroStrings je program razmjene EuroStrings u kom učestvuju EuroStings umjetnici, pobjednici međunarodnih takmičenja na 17 europskih festivala gitare, koji su članovi platforme EuroStrings.

Putem programa razmjene EuroStrings  podržava cirkulaciju novih talenata među festivalima gitare unutar platforme pružajući EuroStrings umjetnicima priliku da nastupaju na nekoliko EuroStrings festivala, gdje mogu doprijeti do međunarodne publike i dalje se obrazovati, i tako razvijati nove vještine i znanja potrebna za međunarodnu karijeru i prodor na nova tržišta.

EuroStrings program razmjene realizira se na osnovu specijalno osmišljenog EuroStrings kurikuluma. Program sufinansira projekat Kreativna Evropa, a potrebno je istaknuti da je program besplatan za pobjednike međunarodnih takmičenja na festivalima koji su članovi platforme EuroStrings. Pored spomenutog programa, EuroStrings umjetnici dobijaju stipendiju od 200€ za svaki festival na kojem nastupaju.

Pobjednik EuroStrings takmičenja dobija priliku da održava solističke koncerte širom Evrope, Azije i Amerike u periodu 2019/2020, što zasigurno omogućava ostvarenje svjetske karijere.

Treće po redu EuroStrings takmičenje održat će se na zvaničnoj EuroStrings FB stranici od 17 – 20. decembra 2020. godine.

Program stipendiranja

Kako bi vodio računa o finansijskoj situaciji mladih gitarista i omogućio njihovo međunarodno obrazovanje, EuroStrings je razvio godišnji program stipendiranja studenata slabijeg imovinskog stanja. Svake godine  stipendija omogućuje učešće 17 mladih gitarista na jednom od međunarodnih takmičenja gitare, kao i master radionicama na 17 EuroStrings festivala. Konkurs za stipendije objavljuje se na web stranici EuroStrings prije svakog festivala.

Takmičenje za kompoziciju klasične gitare

U cilju podsticanja stvaranja novog repertoara za klasičnu gitaru, EuroStrings je inicirao Takmičenje za kompoziciju klasične gitare. Takmičenje ima za cilj da promoviše nove kompozitore svih starosnih doba čija djela još nisu imala priliku da steknu međunarodno priznanje. Kandidati trebaju biti ili europski državljani ili na neki drugi način biti aktivni u nekoj od europskih zemalja. Pobjednik EuroStrings takmičenja  za izbor najbolje kompozicije dobiva nagradu u gotovini, dok pobjednička kompozicija spada u kategoriju obaveznog komada, koji će se izvesti na finalu Trećeg takmičenja EuroStrings pobjednika.
