The York Music Hub is a small independent charity that works with schools and other providers to create opportunities for young people to make and enjoy music. It showcases the best bands and orchestras in the city at public events, and provides grants and bursaries for individuals and ensembles who need financial support.

Your support could make all the difference for a young person who is passionate about music and wants to learn to sing, or play an instrument and become good enough to join a choir or play in a band.

Any support you are able to provide will go directly to those most in need, and the organisations that support and inspire them.


How can you help?


Every penny that you donate goes directly into opening more opportunities for young people in York. Below are a few examples of how you can help support the work of the hub and help sustain the cities fantastic music provision well into the future:


Become a friend

£24 / £2 per month

As a friend of York Music Hub you will be supporting the wide range of opportunities we provide. This includes a contribution towards the cost of lessons for a child who cannot otherwise afford to learn an instrument, help with the hire of an instrument, or support for the running of one of the many ensembles within York.

£100 / £8 per month

If you make a more substantial donation we will be able to commission more projects and events, and provide more opportunities for our young people. Our annual events such as York Schools Choral festival are regular performance platforms but we are always seeking to increase the number and diversity of the opportunities that we offer. Your contribution will support us in doing this.

£300 / £10 per month

This highly generous option will allow us to cover the entire cost of a child’s music lessons for a year. You will receive regular progress reports, as well as invitations to performances featuring the beneficiary.

Thank you for supporting the work of the York Music Hub. We will add your name to our mailing list and email you a copy of our monthly bulletin, which is sent to all our supporters. In addition, we will send you occasional progress reports on the particular scheme you have selected.

We are also planning to hold occasional events for all our donors, so that you can have an opportunity to meet the young people that you are supporting and hear them perform.
