Project Pitches

Project Pitches are short, jury-selected video presentations that allow insight into some of the most intriguing and NEXT developments in the art music sphere. The pitches are each held by the artist or a project representative live on site. The Project Pitch programme has been expanded for Classical:NEXT 2017, with 14 projects being presented this year.
