The Euroradio Season is made up of series of predominantly live concerts and operas that are offered by Members, Associates and Approved Participants, curated by experts from within the EBU community, and broadcast each year from mid-September to mid-June. The objective is to give special attention to the highest quality music events from across the EBU membership.
The Season contains the following series:
Euroradio Premium Concerts
Headline events in the musical season of a given hall or city are hand-picked for inclusion in this series and broadcast live whenever possible.
These are world-class productions offered by EBU broadcasters. As well as a general series that features individual productions from across the Membership, three special series are put together from the Vienna State Opera, the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden, London, and principal opera houses in Italy, respectively.
Metropolitan Opera Season
The live relay of the Met's Saturday matinees from Lincoln Center in New York, every Saturday evening in Europe from December to late spring the following year.
Euroradio One-day Events
These are the Christmas Music Day and Holy Week Music series, in which specially themed concerts are curated and sequenced for broadcast ahead of Christmas and Easter respectively.
In years featuring major anniversaries or other significant events, like the Beethoven 250 celebrations, special one-off series are also created.
Along with the Euroradio Summer Festivals, the Euroradio Season represents one of two elements in the Euroradio Package, available to Member radio organizations through a flat-rate annual fee. Members who opt for the Package are free to broadcast any or all of the concerts and operas featured.
