Classical music professionals gather in Montréal


For its first large-scale event to be held outside of Europe, the IAMA (the International Artist Managers’ Association) chose Montréal as host city.

For more than 20 years, the IAMA has organized this annual conference for classical music professionals from twenty different countries. The conference was held at the Maison Symphonique under a theme of Challenges and Discoveries, and welcomed more than 250 participants. Among the various events they attended were an interview with Kent Nagano, and concerts by ensembles and musicians from here and abroad. The event helped everyone reflect on the future of classical music and forge links between the European, North American and Asian markets.
