As a member of the ECHO – European Concert Hall Organisation network, which consists of a group of prestigious concert halls across Europe, the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation is opening its venue and hosting the Rising Stars cycle. Throughout the musically intense day, in which admission is free, attention will be on the Rising Stars of musical interpretation and creation, to provide the public with the chance to witness the live performances of these future stars.
