CONTEMPOARS is engaged in the promotion, production and organization for the world of music and entertainment in general, focusing its activities in artist management.
It is also a record producer that, through its own record label (CONTINUO RECORDS), is creating a quality catalog, both from a musical and an audiophile point of view.
CONTEMPOARS also offers musicians and organizations consulting services specialized in marketing of arts and culture.
It is involved in all main aspects of music management: artist management, event management, artist development, tour management, talent management, fundraising, collaborating with leading or emerging artists characterized by strong personalities and original interpretative horizons, presenting attractive and often unconventional concert programs.
Establishing authentic and ethic relationships is always the utmost concern of CONTEMPOARS. In fact, we try to do our work with passion and commitment, developing with artists a partnership first and foremost human. For concert organizations, this means being able to communicate with a serious partner with whom to develop quality projects from transparent and fair proposals, always based on artistic excellence.
The presence of young musicians among the artists of CONTEMPOARS is relevant: an asset that can help concert organizations in pursuing effective innovation policies and, without yielding in the quality and interest of the proposals, the increasing need of savings.
CONTEMPOARS follows a small number of artists but is able to offer organizations concert soloists, ensembles and conductors who cover a wide spectrum of music areas and types: from early music to the music of our time, from solo instruments to chamber and vocal music.
