IMG Artists Partners with TACT Artists Management 

The strategic alliance between the two artist management agencies will see each of their vocal departments share resources  


The new strategic alliance between IMG Artists and TACT Artists Management will involve the collaboration of both their vocal departments to pool expertise and resources. 

Representing and supporting numerous vocalists worldwide, the new partnership will also create a broader international network for the companies’ rosters and full access to the range of expertise within both organizations.

Spread across three continents, the IMG Artists team has promoted artists for the past 40 years. Among many others, IMG Artists’s Vocal division includes sopranos Ying Fang and Mélissa Petit; mezzo-soprano Raehann Bryce-Davis; tenor Lawrence Brownlee; baritones Justin Austin and Stéphane Degout; bass-baritone Michael Sumuel; and bass David Leigh.  

A premier personal artist management company for nearly two decades, TACT and its offices are based across Europe. Its vocal roster includes soprano Ewa Płonka; mezzo-sopranos Aigul Akhmetshina, Rihab Chaieb and Yulia Matochkina; tenors Long Long and Mauro Peter; baritone Boris Pinkhasovich; bass-baritone Derek Welton; and bass Adam Palka

“Alliances have always been a tool for growth and by joining together with TACT’s vocal department, IMG Artists will continue to meet the changing needs of our artists whether they be one of great singers of our time or a young artist we are nurturing and supporting in the early stages of their career,” said IMG Artist’s COO, John Evans in the press release.

“TACT began its success story over twenty years ago as an association of independent managers who shared a standard of excellence, network and ambition to deliver the highest quality standards in classical music management,” TACT’s Managing Director Dari Dimova continued. “This collaborative spirit, which is an intrinsic part of the TACT strategy, led to an initial partnership with IMGA for a couple of artists. This fruitful cooperation inspired us to look for a broader alliance with IMGA, with whom we share the same ethics, passion and professionalism.”

“For TACT and IMGA, the artists’ creative and strategic career development objectives are primary, which makes working together exciting and beneficial,” explained Alex Grigorev and Marcin Kopec, TACT’s Directors of Artist Management. “Each organization brings complementary strengths and connections to this new alliance. This respect for collaboration and a clear, internal networking structure that is focussed on teamwork and maximizing resources will allow us to achieve greater collective success.”

“We are delighted to partner with TACT as they share our dedication to offering a personalized approach and dedication to giving artists the management and support they need in a fast-changing industry,” said Matthew Horner, IMG’s Executive Vice President and Global Head of Vocal. “By combining our networks and expertise we will fulfill our mission of giving each of our artists individual attention within a wide-reaching international agency.”

“We have found this collaboration to be very effective, with many benefits for us and our artists,” concluded Romana Jaroff, Managing Director of IMG Artists Americas/Head of Vocal Booking, and Sam Snook, IMG Artists’ SVP/Head of UK Vocal. “We have also discovered we share very similar values and philosophies when it comes to the personal approach to artist management, focusing on the highest-level promoters and investing in the future top talents of the classical music industry.”
