Musical patronage: outcomes of the first 2017 committee.

On 9 February the committee selected 36 projects which respond to our priorities and selection criteria.

selection music ensemble Métaboles
A hundred applications were carefully assessed based on our two priorities: detecting young artists and widening access to classical music. This year, we are thus supporting a number of young ensembles with the potential to tour nationally or internationally, while widening access to classical music through education or the development of high quality musical projects.

In particular, we would like to welcome the Music Crab application which, beyond its ambitions to widen access to music, addresses our two other areas of action: digital education and autism. We will present more details of the project soon.

Some new festivals have been selected by the committee: Langtang Festival in Réunion, Rocamadour Festival and the Messiaen Festival in Pays de la Meije. These represent a wonderfully diverse range of locations and repertoires, from Baroque music to contemporary composition.
So many exciting partnerships for a musical celebration of the Orange Foundation’s 30th year!
