Ambassador Programme

Classeek’s Ambassador Programme

Founded in 2018, the Ambassador Programme is a one-year career enhancement programme for promising young classical musicians, ready for a performance career at the highest level.

Entry onto the scheme is via nomination by one of Classeek’s internationally renowned Artist Ambassadors, including pianists Sir András Schiff and Michel Béroff, cellist Gautier Capuçon; violinist Renaud Capuçon; flautist Emmanuel Pahud, and other key industry players such as Sonia Simmenauer and Markus Wyler.

Starting this year we are opening one place on the programme per season, to young artists looking to pursue an international career as a performer, via an application process.

The overall objective of our tailored, artist-led programme is to find new audiences for the young artist, grow their musical networks, and provide coaching in how to manage the various aspects of a high-level career in musical performance.
