The Peter Eötvös Contemporary Music Foundation is announcing a mentoring program for young professional conductors and composers for the calendar year 2023.

Leading professors of the program: Peter Eötvös (conductor, composer), Gregory Vajda (conductor, composer). Additional renowned guest professors and musicians will be invited for all working periods. The main supporter of the program is Art Mentor Foundation Lucerne.

Peter Eötvös Foundation provides accommodation and travel costs for the selected young artists, and they can participate in the programs free of charge, as part of the mentoring program. The mentored young artists in order to widen their professional network will get the chance to have special consultations with orchestra managers, festival managers, communication specialists, and they could also visit great concerts halls, opera houses.

A full portfolio of all mentored artists will be ready by the end of the mentoring year. The portfolio will contain photos, video- and audio-recordings, interviews, recommendation letters and other promotional materials.

After the mentoring year, mentored artists, conductors and composers will have the possibility to showcase their work with our partner orchestras, the Danubia Orchestra Óbuda (Budapest) and the Pannon Philharmonic Orchestra (Pécs).

We welcome 1 conductor and 1 composer for the mentoring year, with the possibility to extend these numbers.
