Musical Chairs

Your front-row seat to the journey of a professional musician

Musical Chairs

Classical music would not exist without the dedication and passion of its musicians, who only exist through the support of individuals like you.

By choosing to sponsor a musician, you are not only helping to ensure their career thrives, but also joining a centuries-old tradition of direct patron-to-artist relationship in music; a tradition that helped create the artform as we know it and continues to sustain it even to this day.

As a Musical Chairs sponsor, you will have a front-row seat to the journey of a professional musician, having the opportunity to befriend your chosen artist and learn about their personal and professional life. This relationship makes a direct positive impact on the life of our musicians, ensuring that they can continue to share their talent with the world and, together, allow us to reach new heights.
