Keynote Artist Management is an open book whose content is defined by our artists and our passion to deliver innovative, refreshing and engaging projects. We are committed to providing a personalised, collaborative and caring experience for our artists and partners. Integral to Keynote is our commitment to supporting and developing the next generation of talented young performers.

LIBBY ABRAHAMS

Having worked for over 20 years in some of the most prestigious global artist agencies, it was a natural step to branch out on my own in order to deliver my vision of a modern, flexible and innovative artist management agency.​ Over the last years, Keynote has gone from strength to strength. We have grown but retained our ethos of working honestly and openly with our Artists to deliver a personalised, collaborative and caring experience, which has never been so important as it has been during the pandemic. I am extremely proud of how Keynote has worked through these difficult times and I am looking forward to coming together again as a team to face the challenges and opportunities ahead.

Working at Keynote is as much fun now as it was when I started. Looking back, we’ve delivered an impressive array of international touring projects, signed some wonderful new artists and created an exciting new singers division and our excitement for what the future holds remains undimmed. Partnership, collaboration and fun, underpinned by hard work and commitment, remain at the core of everything we do and the strength of the way we work as a team makes me very proud now in these pandemic times more than ever.

After completing piano studies at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire and - latterly - at City, University of London, an Internship at IMG Artists sparked my interest in artist management. I feel privileged to have worked with some incredible artists of global renown and I’m thrilled to have been given the opportunity to continue doing so, here at Keynote. I’m very much looking forward to working with this fabulous team.

For many years I have been on the other side of the classical music business as Artistic Manager of The Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen and as Head of Artistic Planning at the Wiener Konzerthaus before taking the step back into artist management joining the dynamic, creative and dedicated Keynote team at the end of 2018. And there would not have been a more fantastic group of colleagues and artists to navigate the pandemic with! I am now looking forward to us tackling new opportunities and challenges as well as taking a multitude of projects created during lockdown to fruition.

Keynote’s boutique approach combined with its drive and enthusiasm are both energising and inspiring. It’s great to be part of such a closely-knit team, across an array of projects – working with some of the most prestigious artists internationally, in the front line of our new singers’ department and delivering some exciting touring projects too!

After studying at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and Royal Academy of Music, I spent several years as a freelance violinist and teacher before joining Keynote in 2017. Working with a list of exceptional, enterprising artists alongside a team of people with such a wealth of knowledge and experience is incredibly inspiring and a real privilege.

Having been with Keynote Artist Management from its creation, I am thrilled to see how much we have developed as a company over the last seven years. Having re-joined the team last season, following the birth of my son, I have been struck by the continued expansion of artists and projects while at the same time preserving the dynamism, energy and friendliness of the team that makes Keynote such an exciting and rewarding place to work.

Being an avid opera-goer there is something rather cool about seeing one of your own artists performing on stage in one of my favourite operas – also knowing what really goes on behind the scenes to make it all happen! I do feel lucky that I am able to further my personal musical interests into my professional life. Being able to work with a variety of artists makes each and every day different. But I have to say it is also a pleasure to work with my rather amusing colleagues too!

Working with the wonderful team at Keynote is a fantastic opportunity for me, which perfectly suits me during my studies of cultural management at Munich University. To gain a broad overview of the various areas within the classical music world I've done several internships, in particular, the Orchestra Management Team of the Camerata Salzburg. This summer I worked as a production assistant in the concert department of the Salzburg Festival, where I got to know the perspective of one of the most important promoters in our industry and worked in the presentation of concerts with world-class musicians. I think the most valuable experiences are gained in exchange with inspiring personalities, I am very grateful for everyone I met along my way so far.
