In a press release, LGT proudly shares that the private banking group was crowned first place in the category of International Sponsoring at the Swiss Sponsorship Awards 2018. In the Culture Sponsorship category, the LGT Young Soloists project was placed second. The Liechtenstein private bank was also presented with the Public Award in recognition of its great commitment.
“These awards are something very special for us,” commented Monika Schreiner, Head Group Marketing Services at LGT. “With this project, we are continuing the long tradition of promoting culture which has always been maintained by our owners, Liechtenstein’s Princely House, over the years.” Both the Bank and the soloists benefit from this project, which has provided a platform for the musicians to kick-start their professional careers. Conversely, LGT is able to host concerts with the amazingly talented soloists for its customers.
The LGT Young Soloists string ensemble currently includes around 30 musicians aged between 12 and 23. Since it was established in 2013, the young orchestra has played in many famous concert halls around the world. Their third CD will be released in March of this year.
