Arts Global is proud to be present Konstantin Soukhovetski as the Narrator for this performance of Stravinsky’s Soldier’s Tale.
Arts Global was founded in 1999 by its President, Heather de Haes. Originally the Anglo-Suisse Artistic Foundation, in 2006 it became the Swiss Global Artistic Foundation and, on 22 June 2012, Arts Global. The Foundation holds charitable status in the United States, the United Kingdom and Switzerland, and has Friends’ organizations in Russia, the Middle East and Asia.
Arts Global’s mission is empowering emerging artists and advancing social change.
Heather de Haes writes: “The core emphasis of Arts Global is classical music: our objectives are to support, foster and develop Emerging Artists of exceptional talent, offering them performance opportunities, career connections, professional guidance, artistic mentoring and international exposure. The Foundation selects these musicians through rigorous international auditions, judged by a prestigious, experienced panel of experts. In a recent development, we are now starting to work with emerging jazz, music theater and world music artists, primarily in New York City.
“To date, we have assisted over 80 artists from 20 countries. Our near-term goal is to expand these efforts, building on our strong track record and enlarging our impact.
“To achieve its goal, the Foundation organizes unforgettable musical Events in prestigious, culturally significant and unusual venues. We take the best opportunities to promote our musicians in a variety of forums, whether great symphonic concerts or intimate soirées, chamber music series or jazz performances, instrumental recitals or lyric shows.
“Arts Global, in collaboration with its highly esteemed Patrons and Advisory Board, works closely with embassies, renowned cultural figures and institutions—including orchestras and music festivals—and major corporations. Our laureates—Arts Global Fellows—are frequently successful in the world’s leading music competitions.
“As part of our broader community outreach, we actively seek out opportunities to support and advance social change through music and the arts.
“I am proud of the continuing development of our Foundation and of every member of our Arts Global family.”
Heather de Haes.
