Michael Tippett Musical Foundation Reopens for 2023

Arts, Culture and Heritage

31 January 2023/Categories: Grants_and_Funding

Grants are available for young musicians and composers across the UK to support the performance, recording, and promotion of the music of Michael Tippett.

The Michael Tippett Musical Foundation offers grants of between £500 and £3,000 are available to support the following objectives:

  • To award grants to support the development of group music-making especially involving young people, with composing central to the project.
  • To support the performance or recording of works by Michael Tippet.

For 2023 the Trustees have decided to focus the Foundation’s activity exclusively on the funding of performances and recording of music by Michael Tippett, to generate greater revenue for a wider range of activities in future years. Projects related to any of his compositions will be considered, but priority will be given to plans for specific works that are less frequently performed or projects which are unlikely to be mounted without additional financial support.

Projects for consideration should start no earlier than January 2024.

The deadline for applications is 30 September 2023.


How To Apply

The deadline for applications is 30 September 2023. The Foundation aims to notify applicants of any decisions made within 12 weeks of the deadline.

The Trustees normally hold one meeting a year, in the autumn.

Full details of how to apply can be found on the Foundation's website.
