We’re delighted to announce that CMF has been chosen as the recipient of this year’s Rhinegold Charity Fund.
CMF will receive £10,000 worth of advertising to spend across Rhinegold’s flagship classical music publications and websites, including Classical Music, Opera Now and Music Teacher, as well as marketing, design and account management support from Rhinegold.
Dr Clare Taylor, CMF managing director, said: ‘CMF is very proud to receive this endorsement from the Rhinegold Charity Fund. Thank you so much! The Musicians’ Union has just published more data on how classical musicians still struggle to earn a living from performing. Being brilliant on its own is not enough to succeed in the 21st century – life skills, understanding the “business of music”, getting noticed, and developing networks within the industry are all essential. This award will help us to continue with our mission of “turning talent into success” for exceptional young professional musicians.’
Stephen Turvey, chairman of the Rhinegold Charity Fund, said: ‘CMF provides a unique service to the outstanding musicians on its programme. It operates with stand-out professionalism and teaches invaluable skills on how to turn fantastic talent into a rewarding and financially successful career. I’ve seen and heard the fruits of their work first hand at Rhinegold LIVE and other concerts and can only encourage anyone not yet familiar with CMF’s work to do the same.’
Previous recipients of the fund include Orchestras Live, Southbank Sinfonia, the Young Classical Artists Trust, Live Music Now and Pro Corda Trust.
