Young Artists Advice Forum (YAAF)

As the name suggests, the Young Artists Advice Forum is a new vehicle for artistically minded people to absorb, share and discuss ideas with some of the leading personalities in both classical & contemporary music.

The forum is recorded and streamed live as an educational webcast by IC247 and later made available on YouTube, to be used as a resource for anyone interested in new developments & directions in music.

Join us for our next forum on March 1st @2pm CET – a collaboration with the Tonhalle Orchestra Zürich as a prelude to their hugely popular tonhalleLATE, classic meets electronic concert series, and the ZHdK Zurich University of the arts music department.
