Artists

“I believe very strongly that it is of the utmost importance to find the “right manager” – someone who “guides and nurtures” careers, and helps the artist understand what is necessary in order to advance at the various stages that happen in the course of a lifetime career. This “marriage” between artist and manager is perhaps the most important professional decision that the artist will have to make alone – and this choice will shape what happens and when, in the natural evolution of a career. I maintain a very small and select group of singers and conductors, so that I can have the time and energy necessary to accomplish these goals.” – Matthew Laifer
