To help young, emerging musical talent take their first steps onto a professional platform.

by Ray Kohn in Sheffield, England, United Kingdom

The funds are all used for only one purpose: to pay young players a fee - often their first professional engagement. The Festival platform has been used by over 100 players, many of whom have used it as a starting point for their professional career. Our vision is dominated by the belief that music is unique in being able to bring communities together: especially the many that live around the inner city area where our festival takes place.

2020 will be our 7th annual festival. So far we've featured nearly 50 ensembles and had the music of 35 living composers performed - often with the composer present. Set in Sheffield's inner city, local residents attend because we keep the ticket price right down to £5 (children free) which is why we need additional financial support. No one in the charity is paid: the money raised is used almost exclusively to pay the players.
