Deadline 30th September
This is a small Foundation with funds from the royalties generated by performances, broadcasts and publication of the works of composer Michael Tippett (1905-98). When he set up the Foundation, Tippett said he wanted the funds to go towards young musicians and composers, not towards promoting his own works.
As funds are limited the Trustees have decided to focus on one area of musical activity as their single priority, described below.
The development of group music making especially involving young people, with composition central to the project.
