Young Classical Artists Trust (YCAT) is inviting audition applications for outstanding young musicians to join its 2023 management roster.

Selected artists will receive three to five years of developmental and holistic management, worldwide performance opportunities - including a trans-Atlantic collaboration with Concert Artists Guild, marketing, branding, social media consultation and support, plus live recordings at Wigmore Hall.

Audition performances will be measured against a standard of excellence and not against each other. The juries will be looking not only for exceptional musical talent, but also for artistic individuality and projection as a performer. No set number of artists are selected in any one year.

Instrumentalists must be aged 28 or under as of 2 June 2023. Applicants must not already be signed to existing local or international management and must have the right to work in the UK.

Current YCAT string artists include violinists Irène Duval and Charlotte Saluste-Bridoux, violist Jordan Bak, cellist Maciej Kułakowski and the Agate, Adelphi and Balourdet Quartets.
