Animato Stiftung is a small operating foundation based in Zurich, Switzerland. Every second year, it organizes a sponsoring cycle for young musicians, comprising an international soloist competition and a music academy for 80-plus students where the Philharmonic Orchestra of Animato Foundation is formed, followed by a concert tour of this orchestra to several European music capitals. Most of the young musicians come from central Europe, particularly from the Baltic countries. In 2008, the foundation’s assets increased in value by 2 per cent.
