Paavo Järvi is strongly committed to supporting the next generation of conductors. In addition to the Järvi Academy which is an integral part of the annual Pärnu Music Festival, Paavo Järvi and the Tonhalle-Orchester Zürich created a Conductors’ Academy in 2021. Both Academies offer students daily masterclasses and public performances, as well as professional advice and contacts within the business. The prize winner of the Conductors’ Academy – chosen by the Zürich audience – receives an invitation to join the Järvi Academy, enabling them to immediately further their training with Paavo Järvi in Estonia.
