‘Do I need an agent?’

As a co-promotional partner of YCAT’s new Sounding Board initiative for music graduates and students, we are delighted to share details of its inaugural seminar at King’s College London on Tuesday 4 October at 2pm.

Entitled ‘Do I need an agent?’, the seminar features three of the classical industry’s leading artist managers, who will provide key insights to help people studying music to make informed career decisions.

The expert panel includes Gaetan Le Divelec (Askonas Holt), Kathryn Enticott (Enticott Music Management) and Jonathan Groves (Groves Artists).

Topics will include:

What is the role of an agent?
Do I need an agent to approach promoters?
Do I need to have representation in order to get concerts abroad?
What opportunities do I want that I feel I can’t get without extra help?
What makes a career attractive to prospective agents?

All are welcome but tickets are limited: to book tickets and for more details go to
