The European Music Center is an ambitious and multi-disciplinary project conceived by Jorge Chaminé. a living, modern and forward-looking place conveying the emblematic, humanist values of European culture. Rooted in one of the most fertile periods in the history of art, the ECM will be both a heritage site celebrating the artists of the Romantic period and also a music academy welcoming young artistes in training.

Music is at the heart of the EMC project, as symbolised by our first major endeavour: to save and restore the home of Georges Bizet, the brilliant composer of the opera Carmen.
