Squire Artists is an international artist and concert agency.
Squire Artists is an international artist and concert agency. We provide personal management for renowned ensembles, soloists and conductors, as well as for emerging talent. We also create and organize concerts and festivals, manage public relations and marketing, attract sponsors and seek funding, and produce sound and video recordings. Over the years we have built up an international network with some of the most outstanding professionals in the field.
Our collaboration with concert promoters is based on trust, integrity and partnership, in which we develop exciting programming and content for venues and festivals that complements their artistic vision and audience development. Examples of this include the five-day international Februari Festival, in collaboration with The Hague's main concert hall the Zuiderstrandtheater, regular projects at the Amsterdam Concertgebouw and a partnership with the international ARD competition.
In September 2018 Squire Artists and Puskas International artists management & consultancy have launched a large-scale strategic international partnership with a view to jointly representing a pool of selected artists and ensembles in general management and developing projects together. Each agency will retain its own distinct profile, roster and projects, but will collaborate on artist development for a growing pool of international soloists, chamber music ensembles, orchestras & conductors.
"Completely immersed in music and artists management well into the second half of the 1990s, the artists we represented included Elly Ameling, Andrei Nikolsky, Nathalie Stutzmann, Noël Lee, Ruud van der Meer, Marc-André Hamelin, the Grieg Trio, and the Vogler Quartet. With annual concert series in the Amsterdam Concertgebouw and sponsor partnerships with Aegon, ING and Shell these were exciting times indeed!
Providing musicians with the necessary support, making more traditional as well as innovative plans and bringing these to fruition, developing long-lasting relationships with concert organizers and audiences: these aspects once again comprise the ultimate artistic and business challenges, for both Squire Artists and myself."
