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.
As the world thanks its medics, we meet the World Doctors’ Orchestra; Southbank Centre’s Gillian Moore explores how classical music can serve a world changed by Covid-19; Jess Gillam on adapting to online music-making; and the evolution of recordings practice, from vinyl to streaming.
Plus, how Jessica Victoria, who was born blind, is making a career as an opera singer; how festivals are adapting to a world where social distancing is the norm; the varied roles of the music editor; violinist Mathilde Milwidsky releases her debut album; the Royal Academy of Music helps young musicians make their first recordings; pianist Charles Owen on coping with quarantine; and making the case for post-Brexit migration and customs arrangements that enable musicians to continue to work in Europe.
