The Province of Liege is interested in taking part in an European project as a project partner to support live music venues, to foster transnational circulation of emerging European music artists and to help them to develop their career.
The Province of Liege has created a musical support programme covering all musical genres (jazz, world, rock, pop, hip hop, electro, contemporary music) : studio recording, professional training advice, coaching sessions, workshops. This programme is intended to support young bands, authors, composers, only for original compositions. All applicants are selected by a panel of professional musical players. The objective is to improve their musical skills and their capacity-building to develop their career (thematic workshops, residencies, networking). In the end, this programme could help the musicians to prepare their recordings.
The Province of Liege has recently participated in the restoration of an old building built in the 1950s. This new building will become a popular concert venue with high capacity : 2 concert halls, one for 1.500 people (standing) and the other one for 350 people. Up until 2019, the Province of Liege benefited from significant and technical support from partner concert halls. Its music department will set up its quarters on the site of this brand new building, which will allow the Province of Liege to provide a suitable place to develop its musical support programme : three broadcast rooms available to organize residences, spacious recording studios and concert halls to bring the music to a wider audience.
