Music has always had the power to soothe and comfort. In difficult times throughout history, people have come together to heal collectively as they listen to live music, or make music together.
We invite you to end this impossible year on a high and give the gift of live music to the people you love.
Give Music has been created to support the vulnerable, provide work for musicians and donate to Shout 85258 - the free, confidential, 24/7 text message support service for anyone in the UK who is struggling to cope. We see this festive season as a unique opportunity to work together to harness the power of music for joy, connection and emotional wellbeing within our communities.
Our incredible team of professional opera singers, currently prohibited from performing on operatic stages throughout the world, have gathered together as a collective to travel around London to perform glorious, live music to your vulnerable and isolating loved ones.
Throughout December, following all social distancing measures and government guidelines, a ‘Give Music’ mini chorus of 3-4 singers will knock on the front door and perform a 15 minute doorstep concert, of uplifting, life affirming a cappella carols to your gift recipient and their unsuspecting neighbours!
Each singer will be paid a small fee for their time and talent. We have an unbelievable roster of incredibly gifted, high profile opera singers, committed to the project of spreading musical joy at Christmas, and they are so excited to share their voices with you.
25% of the profits we make are donated directly to Shout 85258. Not only will your gift enrich the lives of people you know and love, but each concert will support the performing arts and ensure support for others experiencing urgent issues such as anxiety, loneliness and panic attacks.
Thank you so much for helping us make music and spread joy this Christmas.
