For 200 years the RPS has championed classical music and invested in the profession by supporting young musicians and composers. Funds raised by our supporters are hugely important, and we simply couldn’t keep up our hard work without your financial support.

Every donation, large or small, will make a real difference. We'll let you know how we spend your money via our monthly e-mailings and keep you up to date with the musicians and projects we support.

Please give as much as you can.
