As part of their commitment to sponsoring young talent, HSBC has partnered with the Académie du Festival d’Aix since 2006. Every year, the Festival’s artistic director and staff select a new group of singers, pianists and vocal coaches, and chamber music ensembles to be that year’s HSBC Laureates of the Festival d’Aix. Through this partnership, HSBC France supports the Académie’s most promising young artists in a series of recitals and concerts, in France and abroad, so they may further the experience they have gained at the Festival.
