Music education and the value-chain of classical music

Session 11 | World Café | Thursday, 15.5.2014 | 15:00 – 16:00 | Conference Room 1

How can concert promoters, artist managers, concert halls, radio stations and publishers work more closely together in order to foster a thriving classical music scene and lobby against financial cuts in education and culture? If music education is seen as an investment, how can it be thought through and set up as a successful business model?
