Sound and Music
Sound and Music is the national charity for new music in the UK.
Our mission is to maximise the opportunities for people to create and enjoy new music.
Our work includes composer and artist development, partnerships with a range of organisations, audience development, touring, information and advice, network building, and education.
We champion new music and the work of British composers and artists, and seek to ensure that they are at the heart of cultural life and enjoyed by many.
Help support a young composer to attend the Summer School
In 2018, the SaM Summer School is turning 10!
Since the doors of the Summer School opened in 2009, over 500 young composers, music creators and sound generators have been on our residency, creating over 2000 minutes of new music! We want to celebrate this massive achievement but also pave the way for the next ten years.
It costs £450 to send a student to the Summer School for a week. At Sound and Music, we are determined that everyone who is accepted on the course should we be able to attend – regardless of their family’s circumstances.
Help us to secure the future of the Summer School and open up opportunities to young composers for the next ten years!
“Thank you for the best week of my life. It has opened my eyes to my own ability that I just didn’t know I had which has inspired me to strive for the best with further education.” Katy – Summer School student
