HSBC laureates of the Académie

Committed to sponsoring young talents, HSBC France has been joining with the Académie du Festival d’Aix since 2006.

The HSBC France group supports these young artists – the HSBC Laureates – chosen among the Académie’s most promising talents, enabling them to build on the experience they have gained during the Festival and to perform in recitals and concerts in France and abroad.
