Live music changes lives... and so can you

In planning for the future of classical music, we receive ever-increasing numbers of requests for support. From giving young women their first experience of conducting, or helping low income music students buy the instruments that desperately need, to taking the voices of emerging composers to listeners all over the country, the RPS offers tangible help to the next generation of musicians.

We are able to give the right support, at the right time; when particular teaching, a performance opportunity, or an introduction to someone in the music business, will make all the difference.

Your gift will be used wisely and effectively to enable talented young musicians to take a great leap forward. We can make a little go a long way, giving practical support and providing expert guidance and professional development to those who need and will benefit from it most.

Please be generous. We can do such good with whatever you can give.

In October 1970, Lutoslawski's Cello Concerto received its world premiere, having been commissioned by the RPS. The soloist was Rostropovich, who received our highest honour, the Gold Medal, the same year.
