VP Bank underlines its commitment to supporting young musicians with two new sponsorships
VP Bank will be the main sponsor of the Ensemble Esperanza and the International Academy of Music in Liechtenstein in the coming years, and will also be the Presenting Partner for concerts. With these sponsorships, VP Bank is strengthening its long-standing commitment to supporting the world’s leading young musical talents.
The Ensemble Esperanza is an ensemble of young, up-and-coming solo musicians that was founded in 2015 by the International Academy of Music in Liechtenstein. By sponsoring the Ensemble Esperanza, VP Bank is making it possible for the ensemble to perform in Liechtenstein and Asia, and to put on its own series of concerts in Europe. The first European tour will begin in autumn with an opening concert in Vaduz. The members of the ensemble are musicians from 14 different countries aged between 15 and 30 who have a scholarship at the Academy of Music. After its debut performance at the Hamburg Elbphilharmonie, the Ensemble Esperanza has established itself among Europe’s top orchestras. They have received an International Classical Music Award (ICMA) and an Opus Klassik award.
The International Academy of Music in Liechtenstein promotes highly gifted young musicians aged 10 to 28. In Liechtenstein, they play around 20 concerts a year, which are now made possible by VP Bank’s sponsorship. The young musicians now also have the opportunity to show off their skills on the international stage. VP Bank also offers young musicians the chance to demonstrate their talent at top-class client events.
The commitment to classical music is an integral part of VP Bank’s sponsoring activities. For five years, the financial institution supported the VP Bank Classic Festival as a Presenting Partner. “This support is very much in line with VP Bank’s long-standing commitment to the arts and the cultural sector. I am delighted that we are able to continue supporting young talents in the important home market and internationally”, commented Chief Executive Officer Paul Arni.
