  17. 17. vision • Use of etudo in ensembles. For example, Chorforum Wien, which rehearses etudo for the choral festival in June. • Merging the sofasession and etudo concepts: etudo not only as a learning platform, but also as a platform to bring musicians with similar abilities online for a learned repertoire. • etudo as a transhipment point for sheet music: making proposals for new works and songs based on the past and the repertoire learned. Interesting also for music publishers. 26th EAS Conference | Jelgava/Riga - Latvia, 14-17 March, 2018 | F. Höfer & H. Herglotz
