Classical Music relaunches as the voice of the industry11:12, 14th March 2019
In April 2019, Classical Music magazine will be relaunched as the voice of the classical music industry, promoting the crucial role that music plays in the UK’s cultural landscape.
CM will serve everyone involved in creating a sustainable and productive future for classical music, from musicians, to administrative staff, to artist managers, to record labels, and more.
The magazine will offer:
- A platform for campaigners, researchers, new initiatives and opinions in the classical music sector
- Daily updates of online news to keep you in the loop with all the latest developments
- A channel for sharing experiences, advice and resources
- Tools for professional development and wellbeing at every level of the industry
Current deputy editor Lucy Thraves will step up to the role of editor, and will work to deliver this fresh vision for the publication.
Additionally, Classical Music will be launching its first campaign to highlight the challenges of mental health among musicians and promote good practice across the sector. The Harmony in Mind campaign comes with the support of major partners, including Time to Change and the British Association of Performing Arts Medicine, and will carve out a space in print and online dedicated to the improvement of mental health provision in the classical music industry.
Running parallel to the campaign will be a new podcast, hosted by ex-United Nations correspondent Chris Gunness. The ‘Music Plus’ series features interviews with leading figures in industry who are helping to enhance the impact of music on the wider world.
The new-look Classical Music is out 1 April.
