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.
Opening up access to classical music with Europe’s first majority BME orchestra, Chineke!; Isata Kanneh-Mason prepares for the release of her debut Decca recording; the Bach Choir’s concerts for people with hearing loss; and Bamberg Symphony Orchestra feels the benefits of investing in players’ health and wellbeing.
Plus, the Academy of Ancient Music’s ambitious project to make rare choral works available online; Kaleidoscope Chamber Collective at Cheltenham; Guildhall’s SEND programme; guitarist James Boyd on recovering from RSI; Hamburg’s Elbphilharmonie; Uchenna Ngwe’s mission to support the work of musicians of African and Caribbean descent; and Borletti-Buitoni Trust’s new series of grants for organisations using music to help people from disadvantaged backgrounds.
