The Happening is an evening concert, performed by various forehand selected choirs/ensembles and visited by a very large audience. Every year the Happening is the musical climax of the international fraternization between the young people that come to the EMJ. It allows us to meet groups from all over the world and to discover a enormous diversity of music styles and instruments. 

In this concert everyone is welcome: participants, guest families, volunteers, fans, festival visitors, ...

All selected ensembles will have the opportunity to perform an individual programme as well as a mutual programme, finished off during a professionally  conducted workshop. The very popular Happening programme offers a various program, enjoyable by everyone. The interpretation is done in conjunction with the conductors and the organising committee.
The scores for the mutual part of the program are sent to the selected groups beforehand, so that they are able to study it at home.
