The winners of the first-ever Classical Post Awards have been chosen, in which we have deliberately chosen a mix of both the superstars and the underdogs who have contributed in a “most innovative” way to the art form.
Classical Post was founded on the principle that classical music needs to be celebrated despite most media’s shrinking classical music coverage. We are here to fix this lack of coverage, writing about not only superstar musicians and top tier organizations, but the highly-gifted artists and innovative presenters that might not be bold-faced names at the moment.
Classical Post Awards are created to applaud the most innovative musicians and organizations in the classical music industry who introduce new and/or highly creative thought applied to their craft, ensemble, or organization.
