Making a future in the industry
Classical Music magazine sits at the heart of the profession, providing news, opinion, resources and practical advice that supports professional musicians and those who serve the industry to build and sustain successful careers. Our team of dedicated editors and contributors all have backgrounds in music and journalism and we are passionate about the future of classical music.
We champion the achievements of those working in music-making across genres and campaign for increased support in tackling the challenges that arise from this rapidly changing political, financial, technological and social landscape.
CM takes a look behind the scenes at the venues for this year’s BBC Proms; Penderecki reflects on his career at 85; Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra reaches out to local communities in Devon and Cornwall to inspire a long-lasting love of music-making; and our report from the 29th IAMA conference in Dusseldorf.
Plus, Jonathan Dove introduces his new accordion concerto; how the Manchester Collective is using non-traditional venues to push the boundaries of the traditional concert; Orchestra Manager of the Year David Wilson; Rebeca Omordia’s African Concert Series; Matthew Wadsworth on the world’s first theorbo concerto; how Truelinked is connecting artists, agencies and organisations around the world; student mental health; and Richard Heason on the challenges and joys of hosting a festival in St John’s Smith Square.
