Debut Discs is coming back for a second series and we need your help to make it happen!
Debut Discs is NMC’s acclaimed showcase for younger composers, enabling the release of their first full-length portrait album and helping them to secure exciting new professional opportunities.We launched the first series of Debut Discs in 2012 with great success, releasing 13 albums over 5 years which led to residencies, performances, commissions and academic opportunities for the composers involved.
We’re now thrilled to be extending the series, and plan to release at least a further 8 albums between 2018 and 2021.The first will be Philip Venables’ Below the Belt later this month, and future albums are planned from Joanna Bailie, Edmund Finnis, Linda Buckley, and David Fennessy - with more names to be announced.
A project on this scale requires a great deal of resources, and we need your help to make this happen. A donation of any size to our Debut Discs appeal will make a huge difference to our work with these composers, and allows us to nurture their future careers at a critical stage in their professional development. We’ve already raised 70% of our fundraising target, and with your help we will be able to inspire audiences worldwide with the work of these exciting composers.
If you felt able to make a donation, we would be very grateful. You can donate online here:
For a short time only, for every £1 you donate to NMC, Arts Council England will donate another £1. This means your donation will be doubled, and enable NMC to do even more for new generations of composers and listeners. Don’t forget, you can also boost your donation by completing the Gift Aid declaration.
Thank you for your support! If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch with Alex at firstname.lastname@example.org or 020 3022 5888.
