We are excited to be taking part in the Big Give Christmas Challenge, the UK’s largest match funding campaign!
Promoting thousands of causes and building connections with supporters globally, the Big Give provides an important platform for charities of all kinds and sizes.
Last year, we raised an incredible £42k – a huge achievement, and one which enabled us to provide support to more gifted young musicians across the UK in 2020-21. In fact, our musical family grew by 50% this year, with over 90 musicians now receiving financial support and opportunities.
This year, we are aiming to double the number of gifted young musicians we support.
For a week starting on Tuesday 1 December, all donations made through the Big Give will be doubled! Matched by funding already generously provided by some of our supporters and our Big Give Champions, all donations will have twice the impact.
We are proud and incredibly grateful to be championed by the Four Acre Trust this year, whose work includes supporting extracurricular projects in schools.
With the support and generosity of our community and this funding opportunity offered by the Big Give, we will continue to increase the number of gifted and underprivileged young musicians who will flourish and build on the quality of support we deliver.
You can join our campaign on social media as we share stories from across our community of supporters, partners and musicians.
On 26 October 2021, we hosted our first gala in two years at The Charterhouse, featuring a world prèmiere from Sheku Kanneh-Mason and Nishat Khan, including performances from a variety of our talented young musicians.
Providing support to eight young singers, the VOCES8 Future Talent awards are open until 11 October
