Each year, the European Concert Hall Organisation (ECHO) selects a group of exceptional young artists to become its Rising Stars. These outstanding performers are supported to develop their careers in a whole range of ways, including the fantastic opportunity to tour the major concert halls of Europe.

The ECHO Rising Stars programme has shaped the musical careers of many of today’s world-class artists, and for audiences it is an unrivalled opportunity to hear the classical stars of the future. This year, we are looking forward to welcoming four of these incredible musicians to Sage Gateshead for an afternoon of mini concerts on Saturday 22 January. Each concert will include a number of pieces selected by each Rising Star, as well as a new commission composed especially for them.

ℹ️ Useful Information
