Media Ensemble Group

Petr Hornik

The Media Ensemble Group is made up of volunteer Member representatives forming a core group of orchestra managers who are extremely active in their support of EBU media orchestra activities. This small group of six people works for the wider Media Ensemble community, which extends to all ensembles from EBU organizations, whatever their format.

The priorities for the Group, set together with the EBU Music Unit, are to make the case for public service media ensembles’ contribution to the wider music sector; to reflect on and discuss the role and significance of what it means to be a “media ensemble” in today’s world, including technological advances and digitization; to increase interaction and foster collaboration between ensembles and parent radio organizations; to focus on diversity and inclusivity in all activities; to conduct data collection initiatives benefitting the whole community, enriching common knowledge about this unique network of EBU ensembles.
