At Help Musicians, we are delighted to see the return of the Proms after an unprecedented period of hardship for the UK’s musicians.
Since the pandemic began, we have provided more than £18m to support over 19,000 musicians facing financial turmoil, but this Proms season reminds us that we are a charity for times of opportunity as well as crisis.
It takes years of dedication to become the musician you see on stage and the cost of training can amount to tens of thousands of pounds. We are proud to be able to say that 1 in 4 of the world-class soloists performing at these Proms received direct support from us early in their careers.
"You don’t get to perform on stages like the Royal Albert Hall without some serious study, and my studies were only made possible thanks to two generous grants from Help Musicians" - Tim Mead
We believe in a world where financial status shouldn’t be a barrier to achieving musical ambitions and we ask you to join us in this, our centenary year, to help give musicians the support to survive, create and thrive.
