A festival for all, with something for everybody. In 1971 the 6 leading music festivals of the French-speaking community (Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles) came together to found the Festival de Wallonie. They did so with the shared aim of promoting classical music, of every kind and for every type of audience. Every year, from June to October, the Festival de Wallonie presents more than 150 concerts all over Wallonia and in Brussels, in churches, castles, abbeys, cathedrals and historic buildings.

The Sevda-Cenap And Music Foundation organizes the International Ankara Music Festival as part of its efforts to make universal polyphonic music common and aims for a festival worthy of the capital city. The International Ankara Music Festival became a member of the European Festivals Union, in 1993 and was run under the auspices of the President for the first time in 1994. After these two important steps, a change in the attitude of sponsors towards the festival has enabled the festival to gain an increasing level of support each year. The main collaboration is made by cultural institutes in Ankara. One issue which many people wonder about is how the festival programme is arrived at. The plans are drawn up by the foundation secretary after a year of applications and contacts. These are presented to a commission of representatives from all the musical organizations in Ankara with whom it takes its final form. This festival is held annually during the month of April.The SCA Music Foundation is a devoted partner of the MusMA project and as such, has proposed the artistic theme for 2014 and held the annual Atelier in Ankara in 2014.
