YCAT announces partnership with Concert Artists Guild12:16, 10th January 2020
Young Classical Artists Trust (YCAT) has announced a partnership with New York’s Concert Artists Guild (CAG).
Both organisations work to launch the careers of emerging young musicians. Joining forces will allow them to offer their artists transatlantic opportunities and enhanced resources.
Alasdair Tait, chief executive and artistic director of YCAT, said: ‘As we prepare to select our next group of YCAT artists, it’s so exciting to be exploring ways of deepening our relationship with CAG. 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.’
Tanya Bannister, president of CAG, added: ‘It’s fantastic for young musicians to have both CAG and YCAT working together to mentor and create opportunities. It’s imperative to explore increasing resources for musicians that help create unique and global points of view.’
