As classical event promoters YCAT present concerts to showcase its artists, including concerts in London as part of the YCAT Wigmore Lunchtime Series, Southbank Purcell Room Presentation Concerts and performances in Manchester at the Bridgewater Hall. The reputation YCAT has earned over the years as the first port of call when searching for international, award winning young classical artists and ensembles is borne out by the impressive roster of past artists and ensembles who have benefited from the scheme over the years. As a classical musicians agency YCAT liaises with event promoters in the UK and abroad providing performance opportunities and engagements for its artists. YCAT Website
