Areas of involvement
Supporting young people on their journey to becoming professional musicians
Supporting music means first and foremost supporting young musicians, who are today’s promising talents and will be tomorrow’s great artists. As a partner of the two most prestigious music education institutions in France - the National Conservatories of Music and Dance of Paris and Lyon - the Foundation supports young people on their journey to becoming professional musicians through grants and instrument loans.
Support for musical groups and venues
Support for artists goes hand in hand with support for musical groups and participants in the music world who bring heritage to life. The Foundation is a partner and long-standing sponsor of orchestras and independent ensembles, which give concerts and performances every year in France and abroad. The Foundation also supports venues, with the aim of promoting a vibrant culture.
Sharing and opening up to new audiences
Bringing musical heritage to life means making it accessible to audiences who are usually far removed from it. This outward-looking approach is deeply rooted in the policy of the Foundation, the ambition of which is to combine the values of excellence, sharing and innovation. This means that funding is provided for music outreach and education projects that aim to encourage instrumental or vocal abilities and to enable people to discover and love classical music and to expand its reach.
In its “Classical Music” scope of action, the Foundation supports structures legally domiciled in France. Support is aimed at professionals in the sector.
Financial support: The Foundation provides long-term support, granting financial aid over three years, renewable for two additional years.
Support for a change of scale: by providing support over multiple years, the Foundation remains attentive to its partners and can finance specific assistance (provision of advice or support) to enable them to progress in various areas: legal and social structuring, communication and fundraising, digital transition, etc.
