Giving talent a chance

Musical talent is everywhere but, more than ever, opportunity isn’t. Life may feel like it has been paused but music is still playing. Young musicians are still playing. We’re continuing to support over 500 young musicians from across the UK. Thanks to our family of supporters – most of who have committed to make a monthly donation - young people are busy listening to, creating and playing music.
