Shaping the future

Classical:Next is considered one of the most important gatherings of the international classical music world. This year, it is taking place in Berlin for the first time, and there have also been changes behind the scenes: Andreas Richter joined the organising GmbH as a partner at the beginning of the year and is responsible for the conference part of the event together with the ARCC team. Karsten Witt and Nikolaus Rexroth, both from Karsten Witt Musik Management, and Clemens Seemann are also new to the team. Fabienne Krause is Managing Director.

The conference programme offers a wide variety of inspiring topics: new concert formats and audience development, digitality and AI, change management and sustainability and many more. Showcases present a broad spectrum of high-calibre artists and productions from all genres, from early to contemporary, traditional to experimental.
