Live music is... worth supporting!

Please donate what you can towards our Annual Appeal

"Of all of the schemes for young composers I have participated in, this is by far the best." 
Desmond Clarke, composer

Your gift will be used wisely and effectively to enable talented young musicians in need to take a great leap forward. The demand for our support is ever-increasing and we can make a little go a long way, giving practical support and providing expert guidance and professional development to the next generation. 

"The mentorship with Anne Queffélec came at just the right time. Establishing oneself as a performer after finishing at a conservatoire is extremely challenging.”
Clare Hammond, piano

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.

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

Thank you.
