About Us

About us

With a history dating back over a century, Askonas Holt is one of the world’s leading arts management companies, specialising in classical music. Working across the globe, our highly experienced team provides bespoke, strategic career management for established and emerging artists, with our fellowship programme fostering the next generation of talent.

Touring & Sustainability

Our award-winning Tours and Projects department arranges tours and residencies for orchestras, ensembles and dance companies, and is committed to leading new collaborative initiatives that put the containment of the climate crisis at the heart of every touring decision. Our team has been breaking new ground for decades, from the Berliner Philharmoniker’s first tour of Asia and the Simón Bolívar Youth Orchestra's landmark tour in 2007, to the Ukrainian Freedom Orchestra’s debut tour in 2022.


With offices in London and Berlin, Askonas Holt is part of a strategic alliance under the umbrella of the San Francisco of Music, along with sister companies Opus 3 Artists in New York and recording label Pentatone. The alliance organisations share a common mission to change the nature of how artists, students, patrons and audiences interact with one another, and to increase the impact of music in the world.
