We Accompany Outstanding Talents to the Top

Launched in 2016, the YOUNG ARTISTS FOUNDATION is a pioneering, non-profit organization dedicated to supporting, nurturing and developing the lives of talented young classical musicians in order to enable them to embark on a professional career in the international music business.

The YOUNG ARTISTS FOUNDATION accompanies young classical artists on their way to the top of the international field. Sensitive mentoring and help with essential decisions offer life-changing support at this critical time in their professional life.

The YAF fellows are selected by way of audition by a distinguished jury. Once they are affiliated with the fellowship, YOUNG ARTISTS FOUNDATION develops a long-term and individual strategy for each musician with an uncompromising standard of excellence in our approach.

Working globally, the YOUNG ARTISTS FOUNDATION ensures direct access to decision-makers and highly connected individuals and enables its fellows to enjoy a professional and healthy start in the music business through intensive mentoring as well as the acquisition of funds and international engagements.
