What's an emerging opportunity that can be developed in the classical music performance world / how can classical music expand its impact in the present moment?
Classical music performance must engage in conversation with the 21st century. We’re at an inflection point in classical music that can open us to new interdisciplinary and philosophically complex projects.
How does your institution reflect the values of the AVANT initiative in general, and/or the IMPACT PERFORMANCE competition in particular?
We know artists are already engaging in these conversations. What they – and we! – need is a sustainable platform to launch those conversations out into the world. AVANT is that platform. The Lynch Foundation forges partnerships with organizations like Ariel Artists whose innovative ideas have the potential to sustain, multiply and influence the lives of others.
What would you say to an artist considering applying to the IMPACT PERFORMANCE innovation competition?
We are here because we trust in your brilliance and in the power in your work. Show us your best ideas and we will evaluate them with an open mind.
