We want to make great classical music livestream experiences and support artists who are currently unable to perform in public.

We're still collecting donations

On the 17th June 2020 we'd raised £250 with 13 supporters in 28 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

Like many industries in the world, the classical music world has been hit extremely hard by COVID-19. Concert halls, opera houses, and churches have all been closed to protect the public and the opportunity for classical musicians to perform and earn in public seems to be distant. 

However, we think there is another way to perform moving, entertaining work in this new age.

Capinski Recordings has been working with some of the UK's best young operatic talent for over 5 years and has a back catalogue of hundreds of performances, recorded for the artists over the years. With their permission, we are compiling recital concerts for online streaming of high-quality recorded performances, produced before the lockdown came into effect. Alongside these wonderful films, the artists themselves join us all for a chat allowing us all to come together as a community to enjoy the insight and stories of operatic performances.

We hope to be able to continue our work after the lockdown restrictions have been lifted a little and record new fantastic performances, bringing them to you wherever you may have to stay.

We don't believe that people should be excluded from enjoying the work of our amazing artists due to financial difficulty, so we want to keep this free of charge and open to all. However, if you are able to, we would be so grateful for any donations you may like to make, which would be shared evenly amongst all the performers. With income streams cut down to almost nothing, it is only through the generosity of classical music's fans that its practitioners can hope to keep working, and our hope that we can recreate a concert going experience for all.
