"It's fantastic for young musicians to have both CAG and YCAT working together to mentor and create transatlantic opportunities ..." Concert Artists Guild President, Tanya Bannister has this week said.
"It is imperative that we work together to give the best chance to musicians to have a sustainable career that is unique to each musician and with a global point of view,” she has said.
“Following the success of cellist Jamal Aliyev and recorder player Tabea Debus at the CAG’s Victor Elmaleh Competition in October, it is so exciting to be exploring ways of deepening our relationship with CAG ..." YCAT Chief Executive, Alasdair Tait has this week said.
"Rather than simply sharing artists, this is an opportunity for us to grow the creative opportunities available for young artists on both sides of the Atlantic and further our aligned missions of developing and challenging the landscape for 21st-century musicians,” he has said.
