You can help us unlock music’s potential
Each year, EFG London Jazz Festival's charity, Serious Trusts relies on individual donations to sustain our work with musicians and participants.
By supporting us, you can help to ensure that music is accessible to all, and artists have the opportunities needed to develop and reach their full potential.
We are committed to:
• Talent Development – supporting emerging artists in building sustainable careers.
In this year’s Festival, there are over 40 Seriously Talented artists performing who’ve taken part in a Serious talent development programme. Serious Trust is proud to support these programmes alongside other partners.
• Learning & Participation – creating opportunities for a broad range of people to enrich their cultural experience and personal development through music.
This year over 250 people are attending a gig as part of our Serious New Audiences scheme which offers highly subsidised tickets to community and schools groups. This is a programme supported by Serious Trust.
• Commissioning new music across the breadth of our work, giving opportunities to artists to reach the next step in their career and enriching the genre.
Get closer and get inspired.
