2019 Classical:NEXT Fellows have been announced. Simonette Turner and Belle Chen will attend the industry event in Rotterdam (15-18 May 2019), with the unique opportunity to network with other professionals from all over the world.

The Fellowship program is facilitated by Classical:NEXT together with a number of international partners, and the Australian component is funded by APRA AMCOS and the Australian Music Centre.
