ABOUT MKI ARTISTS
For more than sixty years, MKI Artists has represented many of the world’s leading classical musicians. Helmed by John Zion – who took ownership of the firm in 2015 – our experienced team directs the careers of a select group of artists.
Our artists have received the industry’s top honors including the Grammy Award, Avery Fisher Career Grant, Bogomolny National Service Award, Cleveland Quartet Award, Wigmore Medal, and Musical America’s Ensemble of the Year. They’ve also received top prizes at the Tchaikovsky, Queen Elisabeth, Van Cliburn, Paganini, Gilmore, J.S. Bach, Borciani, and Bordeaux Competitions. Our artists record for major record labels including Deutsche Grammophon, EMI, Sony, and Warner. They also serve in residence at the finest universities and music schools including Harvard, Northwestern, Indiana, Curtis, Eastman, and Cincinnati.
In 2016 MKI Artists formed an association with Linda Marder and CM Artists, designed to enable both agencies to expand their ability to reach more presenting organizations and orchestras. As MKI Artists looks to the future, it is with an eye toward further defining what it means to be a full-service boutique agency, poised to provide the highest-level artist management services for performers and presenters around the world.
