Created in 2019 by composers Yann Robin, Henry Fourès and Elisabeth Gutjahr, it is aimed at the new generation of female composers, composers and performers, and aims to guide them in their training and support them in their professional integration.
The result of collaboration between the Mozarteum University of Salzburg in Austria, the GMEM and the ensembles Multilatérale, Métaboles and quatuor Tana, it takes place alternately in Salzburg and Marseille.

The 2024 edition will take place from July 8 to 13, 2024 at Salzburg's Mozarterum, and will offer 12 carefully selected young composers, 2 string quartets, 6 singers and an assistant conductor, training of excellence alongside an expert teaching team with varied aesthetics.

In total immersion, they will benefit from the teaching of Francesco Filidei, Henry Fourès, Elisabeth Gutjahr, Sarah Nemtsov, Valérie Philippin, Eva Reiter, Yann Robin and Christian Sebille.
Contributing to this creative effervescence, musicians from the Tana Quartet and soloists from the Multilatérale and Métaboles ensembles, directed by Léo Warynski, will accompany the students and work hand in hand with them, placing cooperation at the heart of the exchanges.

To make the experience even richer, several concerts will be held throughout the academy and will be offered to all audiences. As a fervent defender of contemporary repertoire and creation, ARCo proposes a varied program combining major existing works and creations by the trainees, ensembles and artists present.

During this meeting time, transmission, exchange and sharing are at the center of the relationships and spread among all the participants: ARCo stimulates a social ebullition charged with inventiveness and becomes a fertile ground for experimentation and creation.
