Ariel Avant :: Connect Forward

Solving for the Evolution of Classical Music as an Art Form

The Ariel AVANT “innovation competitions” provide a platform for concert presenters, industry thought leaders, and Ariel Artists staff and roster artists to join forces in pushing forward the evolution of classical music as an art form. AVANT is an “everyone wins” platform putting out a call for the best artistic ideas in the classical music ecosystem. Musical mastery is a given. Relevance, innovative power, inclusive dialogue, and positive impact are our metrics of excellence.

The launch of the Ariel AVANT “innovation competitions” was intended to begin with the category of IMPACT PERFORMANCE, inviting artists to propose an interdisciplinary collaboration designed to generate productive conversation and offer positive means of action addressing a social justice issue.

The IMPACT PERFORMANCE competition – along with the incredible presenting partners, thought leaders, and artists joining the inaugural edition – will be unveiled when the coronavirus situation clarifies. The Overview of that competition can be found HERE, with more details to come.

Meanwhile, we have the infrastructure built to pivot and offer something relevant to the urgency of the present moment. The whole strength of the AVANT platform lies in its agility to be immediately responsive to the speed of artistic evolution, the pressing concerns of the moment, and the shifting paradigms of our industry.
