Live Music Now

Live Music Now

The scheme, founded by the late Yehudi Menuhin in 1977, fulfils two objectives simultaneously. One is to provide performance opportunities for talented young professional musicians at the outset of their careers; the other is to enable people, who would otherwise have very limited access, to experience and participate in high quality concerts and workshops. Clients include children with special needs in schools and playschemes; adults with mental health problems, physical disabilities and learning disabilities in day centres and residential homes; elderly people in sheltered housing schemes; inmates in prisons; and members of rural communities.

The scheme operates through its offices in London, the Midlands, the North West, the South West, Yorkshire, Ireland, Scotland and Wales, and auditions are organised in different parts of the UK. The age limit is 27 for instrumentalists and 30 for singers. Ensembles of up to 5 artists can apply.
