Becoming a Friend

Our Friends play a vital role in our story. Their support is crucial in sustaining our exceptional artistic work to a wider audience, and to delivering our empowering education and community programmes to the musicians of the future.

The Friends circle has nourished my love of music, has offered me new acquaintances and constantly opens my eyes and ears to new experiences. Music relaxes the soul and we all need that escape.
