1.21 gigawhaaaat? Sinfini Music's raffling a two-night sponsorship (including festival tickets) during the Edinburgh International Festival, a three week celebration of classical music, theater, opera and dance that unfolds in the Scottish capital from August 8 to 31. Enter now -- the competition deadline is tonight, Wednesday 2 April 2014 at 23:59 GMT!
This year's performing arts festival gets a digital boost from Sinfini Music as its first digital media partner -- the London-based classical music org will roll-out online initiatives, including materials to support the festival's Young Musicians’ Passport. Sinfini's among other classical music orgs that throw muscle behind the festival such as production sponsors the BBC Music Magazine and Classic FM.
The 2014 festival program includes Bach, Britten, Bernstein, Shostakovitch and Mahler performed by orchestras such as the Royal Concertgebouw, the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra. Performers include soloists such as Ian Bostridge, Nicola Benedetti, Simon Keenlyside and Anne Sofie von Otter.
