Guest concert producers

Eesti Kontsert is looking for ambitious guest concert producers

Celebrating its 80 years in concert organising in upcoming 2021, the concert agency Eesti Kontsert invites music organisations and organisers to participate in the completion of the 2021-2022 concert season. The deadline for applications for guest producers is September 1st 2020.

In order to strengthen the collaboration with other concert organisers, Eesti Kontsert invites all concert producers active in Estonia to join the program compiling of 2021–2022 concert season and to present ambitious ideas for music events and music – centred crossover performances of international level. For the selected music projects, the needed organizational and financial support will be provided by Eesti Kontsert.

In order to apply, please send:

  • an overview of your previous work and motivation letter;
  • a summary of the presented production, including a brief description of the artistic content and targeted audiences, a schedule for project preparation and implementation, and an overview of the budget;
  • the contact details (email address, mobile number).

In our selection process we evaluate:

  • originality of the idea and bold creative approach;
  • awareness of audience behaviour and ability to work in finding its target groups;
  • the level of possible international interest towards your idea;
  • the professional level and achievements of the producer(s) in cultural management.

We also expect willingness to seek additional funding for the project together with Eesti Kontsert and involvement in marketing planning. Eesti Kontsert treats all the presented ideas as the intellectual property of the producer and ensures that the ideas will not be implemented without the participation of its authors.

Please send the applications to the Head Producer of Eesti Kontsert – Mr. Lauri Aav (lauri.aav@concert.ee). He will also share additional information about the competition if necessary. The deadline for applications for guest producers is September 1st 2020.

One of the strategic goals of the Organisational Development Plan of the Eesti Kontsert for 2020–2024 is to increase the amount of collaboration projects with other concert organisers and music and theatre organisations up to at least 20% of the yearly amount of productions by Eesti Kontsert.
