PRS Foundation’s Resonate re-opens for applications

PRS Foundation announces today the re-opening of its Resonate initiative, which encourages professional orchestras to programme into their repertoire the best pieces of UK orchestral music from the past 25 years. Resonate is a partnership between PRS Foundation, the Association of British Orchestras (ABO) and broadcast partner BBC Radio 3.

Support of up to £10,000 is available to UK orchestras who want to rehearse, programme, tour or promote a piece of music from the Resonate database which includes the huge number of works commissioned by UK orchestras in recent years.

The Resonate database is now live and can be accessed on the PRS Foundation website here

Support will be given to orchestras who can demonstrate a commitment to presenting high quality contemporary UK repertoire which they will promote with the Resonate brand as part of a season, tour and longer-term audience development programme.

The deadline to submit an application is: Monday 3rd October 2022 at 6:00pm

Annual Conference

The next ABO conference will take place in Leeds, hosted by Opera North, from 1-3 February 2023.
