Dispeker Artists is a New York City based agency that represents an acclaimed roster of vocalists, conductors, instrumentalists, and ensembles, and special projects, and enjoys an extensive market in the United States, Canada, Europe, Mexico, Central and South America, and Asia.
Dispeker Artists has been a leading classical music artist management firm since 1947. The firm was founded by the late Thea Dispeker who represented some of the most notable names in classical music, including Richard Tucker, Martina Arroyo, Judith Blegen, Roberta Peters, Jan Peerce, Hermann Prey, Pablo Casals and Wieland Wagner among many others. In 1950, Ms. Dispeker organized the first Pablo Casals Festival in the tiny village of Prades, France, where Casals was living in exile from Spain. In 1997 the International Society for Performing Arts Foundation gave her an award of merit timed to the 50th Anniversary of the agency. Ms. Dispeker retired in 1998, but the firm has continued to preserve her dedication to promoting emerging vocalists and musicians.
