Ever since 2007 EMY has appointed internationally renowned musicians to become festival-ambassadors, requesting them to spread the festival-ideology throughout Europe. They are expected to promote EMY and to create projects in their own country as well as abroad. Currently 17 ambassadors are doing so within Europe but also in the United States of America.
New ambassadors this year are Pavel Eliashevich from Russia and Alexander Jiménez from the USA. Mr. Eliashevich is a piano professor, functioning as a host teacher at famous music academies, performing on stages in many countries, being awarded international prizes and residing as a valued member of the jury in international contests. Alexander Jiménez is a famous percussionist and timpanist, he is the president of the Tallahassee Youth Orchestra, he is a valued host conductor in Europe and the USA, and just like Mr. Eliahsevich he is a much-invited member of the jury at international music-contests. EMY is happy to have both top-musicians accept the ambassadorship
