We also support a number of national youth ensembles in the UK and provide project support for music education initiatives around the world.

As a trustee, you will be joining a progressive, professional and collaborative organisation. We are looking for individuals with an ability to think creatively, with good independent judgment, strategic vision and a commitment to the organisation.
