New York Concert Artists & Associates (NYCA)
New York Concert Artists & Associates (NYCA) understands itself as a modern-day realization of Robert Schumann’s Alliance of David (Davidsbund), an imagined spiritual fraternity of creative minds. NYCA is led by musicians for musicians and the musical public and was founded by pianist Klara Min in 2008.
NYCA also supports young musicians in their career development by way of the New York Carnegie Debut Recital Auditions, which are held annually in New York City and in several cities across Europe and China. The winner of the competition wins their debut recital at Carnegie Hall as well as a recording with the Steinway & Sons record label. The Piano Concert series, chamber music evenings and master classes offer additional performance opportunities for NYCA members and debut recital winners. WildKat PR works with NYCA to expand the organisation’s activities to Europe, started with the recital series ‘The Berlin Debuts’ at the Berlin Philharmonie in Spring 2015.
