  • The only enterprise to rise out of the ashes of CAMI which promises effective artist management. Born of talent and and focus instead of being driven by the outsized egos of the old guard management styles of Sheldon, Fox, etc.

  • That’s good news! Two young but powerful and experienced ladies fortunately contracting not only famous soloists but renowned conductors like
    Mirga Gražinyte-Tyla, Carlos Miguel Prieto or Julian Rachlin as well. Hope and great future prospects in classical music for the post-pamdemic age! Should be a stimulus for other initiatives in these difficult times. We will overcome this pandemic, and (classical) music will be more important and stronger than ever.
