The European Music Council is a partner in the European Musical Exchange Platform (Europäische Musikbörse) that is under the guidance of the German Music Council. The platform provides up-to-date details on what is happening in the music world in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, the Czech Republic and Germany. It helps its users to find out about the music culture in a particular country and offer opportunities for mutual exchanges. If you enjoy music, like making music with other people and are seeking contacts with musicians in European countries, you can set up your own profile on the platform and pass on details of events and publicise and search for cooperation projects.
