We hear there have been many layoffs at Intermusica, the London-based international agency that represents Yuja Wng, Lisa Davidsen and other rising talents.
Among those who have gone is the senior agent, Jessica Ford.
We have obtained this statement from Stephen Lumsden, the agency’s founder and director:
‘Responding to the impact of the current pandemic, like many agencies and arts organisations, we have had to take prudent measures and restructure in the face of the seismic effects of COVID-19. We are deeply saddened to lose a number of our talented and loyal colleagues, including and especially Jessica Ford who has decided to take voluntary redundancy.
‘While most of our cutbacks have been in administration, we have however been able to retain a large number of our creative team across all areas of the business to take us forward. We are completely positive and committed to getting through the crisis and to supporting our world-class artists and partners into a brighter future. ‘
We hear of other cutbacks coming, following this weekend’s collapse of Cami, America’s cornerstone classical agency.
