Five Years of Classical:NEXT

Five years of looking into the future of art music together

We are celebrating the 5th edition of Classical:NEXT and with it the 5th anniversary of the Classical:NEXT movement, bringing together international innovators of art music to look into the future of the genre together.

On the cover of International Arts Manager magazine

we have made a lovely photo collage of some of our most active community members looking into the future together. Where do you see classical music in 5 years. (And contemporary music, and all art music).

Here is the photo of the collage.

And here are the credits from lef to right and then from top row to bottom row.
