JM Hungary is a non-profit organization with two main aims: supporting young professional musicians in the development of their careers; and promoting classical, contemporary, jazz and folk music to young audiences.
JM Hungary shares the JMI mission "to enable young people to develop through music across all boundaries" by providing access to music and seeking to enhance the cultural awareness and openness of young people across the country. JM Hungary organizes programmes that pay special attention to the musical education and social inclusion of people with disabilities.
Main activities include concerts, workshops, competitions, summer camps and youth exchanges as well as providing information and support for young musicians with auditions for international ensembles. Since its foundation in 1965, the JM Hungary has played a key role in supporting future performers and audiences with programmes in cooperation with such distinguished professors as Frigyes Sándor, Miklós Perényi and András Ligeti, and with such extraordinary students as Kálmán Berkes, Miklós Szenthelyi, Zoltán Kocsis and Dezső Ránki.
JM Hungary recognizes the challenges of young musicians in Hungary and those of the general public, including the lack of direction amid the abundance of available music. Yet, the organization is grasping new opportunities and developing new initiatives to build on the tradition of JM Hungary and to promote live music and its values.
