On the 24th of June 2019 Marjon Cnossen, PI of SYMPHONY, received a letter from NWO baring great news: SYMPHONY was granted! In three months time the first Kick-Off meeting of SYMPHONY was organised and took place on the 24th of September.

André Heuvelman (performer, inspiratory and trompist) opened the meeting with his translation of Si dolce e Itormento and inspired every member of the SYMPHONY consortium.

This was the first time all members of the research groups (WP03 to WP12) joined each other to discuss their part of the SYMPHONY research. All workpackages were presented followed by discussion and more collaboration plans!
