Fundraising

Project 48 is raising funds for musical charities, inspired by Bach’s comment that this music was written “for the benefit and use of the musical youth eager to learn, as well as for the special pastime of those already skilful in this study.”

This project will be fundraising for four musical charities who provide much-needed help to those same categories of people today – musicians young and old.
