The Rhinegold Charity Fund, which offers £10,000-worth of advertising spend across Rhinegold’s wide range of classical music and education publications,websites and services, has been awarded to Live Music Now and Young Classical Artists Trust for the 2015/16 financial year.
Ciaran Morton, managing director of Rhinegold Publishing, said: '' The range of charitable activity taking place using music as a power for positive change is truly astonishing. The difficulty for the fund this year was to assess the impact of very different organisations whose outcomes were equally worthy. We met this challenge by agreeing to extend the reach of the fund to support two charities over the coming year.''
Ian Stoutzker CBE, founder chairman of Live Music Now, said: “Together with everyone at Live Music Now, I am thrilled that Rhinegold has selected us this year. We hope that working with Rhinegold will give us the opportunity to publicly celebrate our wonderful musicians, and encourage more people to become involved in this important and ground-breaking work.”
