More about Classical Next
While at Classical Next the composers were matched with a professional mentor, who advised them on how to get the most out of their time at the conference.
Chosen Fellows had the opportunity to meet delegates from the conference including classical music labels, publishers, festivals and representatives from ensembles. This conference provided an invaluable environment to network with the international classical community, and fellows were also able to attend panel discussions and showcases.
