Ricordi Berlin supports the Dirigentenforum (Conductor's Forum)

In a new cooperation with the German Music Council's Conductors' Forum, Ricordi Berlin supports young conductors at the beginning of their career. The "MAESTROS OF TOMORROW", scholarship holders who reach the second stage in the program, receive a free premium account for the sheet music reader Newzik – an innovative app for the organization and performance of digital sheet music. Ricordi provides digital scores via Newzik, offers individual consultation with the Berlin promotion team and contributes to the Conductors' Forum's workshops.

„That the cooperation with Ricordi Berlin was made possible in difficult times like these pleases us and is very motivating for our scholarship holders,“ says Eva Pegel, project manager of the Conductors' Forum.
