Susanna's challenge for new music champions
Our Chief Executive, Susanna Eastburn MBE, is leaving Sound and Music after 10 years in the role. To honour her departure, we’re raising funds to establish one fully funded bursary each year at the Composition Summer School for the next five years, with a target of £10,000 to reach by 30 June 2023.
“My annual pilgrimage to the Summer School has been a highlight of my last 10 years. Time and time again I’ve seen the transformational impact the Summer School can have, with students finding their confidence, artistic voice and making friends for life as well as (in many cases) discovering their path to becoming a composer. But every year I hear students’ stories of how much they have had to overcome in order to pursue this path.
So I’m making a donation towards setting up fully funded bursaries, and it would mean the world to me if you were to join me in this.”
Make a donation now by completing the form on this page and support our Composition Summer School Bursary Fund.
