|The City Music Foundation supports musicians in the early stages of their careers and combines performance opportunities with mentoring and professional development skills such as marketing, public relations and financial management. By enhancing the career prospects of young musicians we aim to cultivate a mind-set of ‘excellence’ that will inspire, bring out talent and make a critical contribution at a ‘make-or-break’ moment in a musician’s life.
The City Music Foundation is determined to encourage excellence in music by investing in the next generation of exceptional musicians. I am delighted that this vision was enthusiastically embraced by the City and in 2013 the City Music Foundation was established with an initial investment from the Lord Mayor’s Appeal that year.
Sir Roger Gifford,
