The Hampsong Foundation is pleased to announce the recently launched Arts@Future series in the IDAGIO Global Concert Hall. This series of online performances, presented during the 2020-21 season, is a unique opportunity to experience the brilliance of tomorrow’s artists and to support their development during this challenging time. High-quality performances from a variety of music conservatories, universities, festivals, young artist programs, and arts organizations will give audiences a unique glimpse into the creativity and talent of the next generation of classical artists poised to launch their on-stage careers.
The COVID-19 crisis has the potential to stunt the careers of many young, talented, and hard-working musicians who are just beginning to make their artistic mark on the world. In purchasing tickets for these concerts, audience members will be providing direct financial support to the education and growth of these young artists. 70% of the net revenue from ticket sales will go directly to the organization or educational institution making each live presentation possible.
Thomas Hampson and the Hampsong Foundation have worked with partners and colleagues to put together a diverse and captivating series of concerts. From contemporary music in Karlsruhe (Germany) to classical saxophone in Michigan (USA) to young opera singers in both Europe and North America, audience members are in for an extraordinary digital experience.
