The Eurochestries have published a book tracing back its activities since 1989.
«The music we share» mentions the Eurochestries’ philosophy, whose goal is both to gather young people from different countries from 15 to 25 years-old thanks to music, and to bring classical music of quality into the rural areas, far from the big spectacle places.
It also illustrates the 72 Eurochestries festivals organized in France and abroad since 1989, but also the other musical actions organized (partner festivals, orchestra tours, international master-classes, etc.)
It refers to more than the 320 orchestras that have participated, from 34 different countries, so that is about 20,000 musicians. Also to the conductors, to the musicians, to the composers and to the musical masterpieces.
Some examples of life process are also illustrated : some young Americans who have become international artists after participating to the Eurochestries ; testimonies of musicians whose coming to the Eurochestries have been important in their lives; “international” marriages made after the festivals; also some conductors who have left too early, etc.
At last, the book illustrates the values that the Eurochestries bring to the young participants as well as to the public: commitment, the sense of effort, responsibility, discovery, international fraternity, etc...
