Concert mediation

«Concert mediation» visual Migros Culture Percentage

Concert mediation involves providing targeted funding for talented musicians in Switzerland. It enables selected solo instrumentalists and vocalists and chamber music ensembles to gain concert experience and raise their profiles.

Concert promoters who engage prizewinners from the Migros Culture Percentage’s instrumental and song competitions to perform in public classical concerts can apply for financial support. In such cases the Migros Culture Percentage covers two-thirds of the musicians’ fees.

Everyone benefits

This arrangement enables concert promoters to offer high-calibre concerts featuring talented up-and-coming musicians on an affordable basis. Meanwhile the Migros Culture Percentage ensures the musicians are appropriately remunerated.

For a good career start

The primary aim is to help young, talented musicians secure more concert appearances and ease their pathway to a successful career.

Apply in good time!

Interested concert promoters should read the guidelines and complete the application form at least three months before the date of the concert.

Applications can be submitted only during the following timeframes:

No applications can be accepted outside these timeframes. A set budget is available for each application period. A panel of experts selects the recipients from the applications submitted. There is no entitlement to support.
