Classical Music Industry MA

Classical Music Industry MA with Liverpool Philharmonic and University of Liverpool

The Classical Music Industry MA is an exciting and unique programme run in partnership with Liverpool Philharmonic and University of Liverpool, for anyone interested in progressing their career in the classical music industry, or entering or developing a career in arts management.

Because the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic is both a professional symphony orchestra and a venue presenting close to 400  concerts and events annually, the organisation has become fluent in the widest range of managerial specialisms. Students will be able to access this deep and rich body of experience in the lecture theatre and within the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, itself.

In the first semester, the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Chief Executive and Executive Team will be guest speakers and in the second semester they will supervise a period of internship within the organisation with the opportunity to become familiar with the operation, management and development of a professional symphony orchestra.

 As a consequence of the unique placement opportunity, students will graduate from this master's programme with enhanced employment prospects. These prospects will be enriched not just by exposure to the best minds of an historic and thriving institution but by the support given by University of Liverpool in completing a dissertation in a chosen specialist field.

''Being with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra I had the opportunity to meet internationally renowned musicians and connect with a highly experienced and inclusive team. My understanding of how the classical music industry works was enhanced by observing the strategic methods behind the planning of the orchestra's artistic activities and selection of repertoire."
