Theresia wins REMA Business Innovator Award

June 6, 2024
Theresia Orchestra has won the Business Innovator of the Year Award from the European Early Music Network (REMA). This prestigious award is a tremendous encouragement for our efforts in providing young talent with significant performance opportunities in the classical repertoire according to a Historically Informed Performance (HIP) approach.

The award was given in the Professional Collaboration category, chosen by a jury of experts in the early music scene comprising of Stéphane Segreto-Aguilar of Circostrada Network, María del Ser Radio Clásica (rtve), and Jan de Winne of Passacaille Records. It was presented to our Artistic Programming Secretary, Susanna Bucher, at the annual General Assembly of REMA, which gathers early music professionals from across Europe and was held this year in Stockholm.

We are honoured to share this recognition with our artistic twin, the European Union Baroque Orchestra (EUBO), the other period instrument youth orchestra managed and supported by Fondazione ICONS.

Our special thanks go to ICONS for their firm support and philanthropic vision!
