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.
This month marks the launch of the new-look Classical Music, with our mission to champion and support those working in the industry. In this issue we introduce our Harmony in Mind campaign addressing the state of mental health and wellbeing in the sector; Mark Wigglesworth on why conducting matters; and our pick of the festivals taking place around Europe this summer.
Plus, the Endellion Quartet at 40; Edinburgh International Festival director Fergus Linehan discusses the importance of creativity; the Chamber Orchestra of Europe brings together musicians from across the continent; taking instruments abroad post-Brexit; advice from undergraduates on starting out at conservatoire; and is social media marketing making us anxious?
