Serious Trust

Serious Trust is an independent national charity which 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:

  1. Talent Development – supporting emerging artists in building sustainable careers 
  2. Learning & Participation – creating opportunities for a broad range of people to enrich their cultural experience and personal development through music. 
  3. Commissions – offering artists opportunities to create and perform new works which enable them to reach the next step in their career, and to maintain a diverse music scene. 

The impact of Serious Trust’s work extends to communities and audiences across the UK, and many of our programmes couldn’t take place without the support of individuals like you. A gift makes a real difference to what we’re able to achieve – for example a small donation covers the cost of a ticket to enable someone to attend a concert who, without support, would not have the opportunity. 

It has been an eye-opening experience to be involved with Serious. Attending a world-class jazz performance can be inspirational, instructional and uplifting! 

I support the Serious New Audiences programme as it provides that experience to those who might not normally attend performances of this calibre, and the Trust is to be commended for this far-reaching initiative.
