Funding for Group Music Making Activities
The Michael Tippett Musical Foundation, the charitable Trust established by the composer to encourage the music of the future, has announced that it is open for applications.
Funding of between £500 and £4,000 is available for the development of group music making, especially involving young people. As funds are limited, the Trustees have decided to focus on one area of musical activity as their single priority. This is the development of group music making, especially involving young people in projects incorporating composition and creative ideas.
Projects in and out of schools or in community situations will be considered. The Trustees will consider applications for first-time initiatives as well as the development of existing projects.
Sir Michael Tippett established the Foundation in 1979 with funds from the sale of his manuscripts to the British Library. The Foundation's purpose is to make donations in the field of music and in its first twenty years more than 500 grants were given to organisations across the United Kingdom to support young musicians and composers, new music and music education initiatives.
The closing date for applications is the 20th September 2012.
