We invite you to the first annual iCadenza Future of Music Festival! The four-day festival consists of three concerts by groundbreaking young artists alongside other events and lectures featuring discourse on the new directions of the classical music industry and centered on the theme “On Our Own Terms: Where do artists want to take the future of classical music?” This will be a high-energy series of events highlighting young, exciting musicians who are redefining the world of classical music on their own terms. The festival will take place at The Colburn School, known as an innovative institution shaping the next generation of artists. The three concerts will be featuring dynamic pianists, opera singers, and members of the Israeli Chamber Project – an ensemble comprised of top Israeli-born soloists.
