Charitable support plays a vital role in enabling Song in the City to deliver its inventive weekly concert series to the public, offer invaluable professional development opportunities for the next generation of classical musicians, commission new work with up and coming composers, and deliver and develop our ground-breaking social projects and work in schools which have already begun to transform lives.
Nearly all of our events are free to attend and could not take place without the contributions of our supporters. Every pound counts towards running costs and allows Song in the City to plan for future innovative projects that will contribute towards forging the future of classical music.

“The excitement in the patients before they left for this event and the atmosphere after they came back was frankly brilliant. I wish we had things like this every Friday…. that’s the happiest I’ve seen the ward since I’ve been here. They were still talking about it Sunday. Dancing and singing when they came back etc. Really wonderful thing to see when they are all individually going through difficult times.”
Dr Mary Docherty, Maudsley Hospital
