Year after year the European Musicfestival for Young People manages to hand out basketfuls of joy and friendship to thousands of young musicians and vocalists within Europe. It all comes true thanks to the non-competitive instrumental or vocal character of EMY, its joy, its friendship, its fraternization, its hospitality and the voluntary efforts of hundreds of volunteers.
The enrolment for the 62nd edition has been closed. On May 1, 2014 the Festival will welcome more than 3600 young voices ( 101 choirs and vocal/instrumental ensembles) from 28 countries in the town of Neerpelt.
