Following the success of the inaugural Classical Music Industry Conference (CMIC), the event is set to return to London’s Wigmore Hall and Middlesex University in November.

The conference will bring together academics, executives and practitioners to discuss and scrutinise the classical music industry in the contexts of music-making, business practices, mediation, politics and education.

The Keynote Address will be delivered by John Gilhooly OBE OSI, artistic and executive director of Wigmore Hall, and the sessions are designed to initiate knowledge-sharing between disciplines and between academia and industry.

The sessions will explore a range of topics around the classical music industry including engagement, the future, opera and accessibility and inclusion.

Session participants include Scott Caizley (King’s College London), James Murphy (Royal Philharmonic Society), Christina McMaster (pianist and Warner Classics), Natasha Loges (Royal College of Music, London) and Ellie Moore (Help Musicians UK).

CMIC 2019 takes place at Wigmore Hall on Tuesday 12 November and at Middlesex University on 13 Wednesday November.
