#Career Day: What's that?

The Career Day is a full day of input dedicated to many relevant career-related topics taking place during the competition, on February 12 – one day before the grand finale!

The day will offer so much – questions of all kind can be asked, know-how acquired and lessons learned! Our wonderful jurors will give feedback to the performances to help you grow, there will be interesting workshops on highly relevant career management topics, exciting guests who are active in the cultural field will discuss about most recent issues and it will be possible to receive individual consultancy to talk about your specific professional career path.

We would like to present to you the coaches and speakers of this special day.


Aimee Paret has been part of #career since its beginnings at the FS&MM2018. It is enriching that Aimee Paret will join the FS&MM2022 and offer individual consultancy for interested participants. Also, she will guide and support our 1st prizewinners.


Andreas Vierziger, curator and strategic consultant, collaborates internationally with concert presenters, festivals, orchestras, record labels, educational institutions and other partners across the classical music business and beyond.

As a former artist manager he worked with several artists of highest international acclaim including GRAMMY winners. He was a board member of Camerata Salzburg and he judged more than 25 international music competitions such as International Johannes Brahms Competition in Austria, Fulbright Concerto Competition and New York Concert Artist Auditions in the USA and Karol Szymanowski International Music Competition in Poland.

Andreas Vierziger lectures at universities such as Tokyo University of the Arts, Helsinki Sibelius Academy, Vienna University of Music and Performing Arts, Royal Academy of Music Copenhagen, Zurich University of the Arts and Paris-Sorbonne.

We are looking very much forward to welcoming him to Graz!
