Project Description

When it is possible to do so we love to work with a charity partner, helping to raise money for their cause and share their mission.  Following-on from a major initiative with UNICEF, collaborations in 2019 include Save the Children, the Coram Foundation and Maggie’s Centres.

Music Productions has just completed the set-up of Eric Whitacre’s Global Foundation (501c3), which will launch in 2020.We also established The King’s Singers Foundation in 2010 and ran the UK-based charity until 2019. The Foundation had four key goals:

  • KS Inspire Music education & workshops
  • KS Share  An online resource for singers worldwide
