Resonate aims to inspire more performances, recordings and broadcast of outstanding contemporary repertoire, as chosen by UK orchestras, whilst strengthening approaches to programming this music for the benefit of audiences, composers and players in the UK and overseas.
A contribution of up to £10,000 is available to orchestras who want to programme and promote a piece of music from the Resonate database, which includes the huge number of works commissioned by UK orchestras. The Resonate database has been created to demonstrate the scope and quality of new music already commissioned by UK orchestras and to enable them to revisit pieces which would strengthen their programming of contemporary British music for orchestras. It can be accessed here.
Support is available for 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.
Resonate is a partnership between PRS Foundation, the ABO and broadcast partner BBC Radio 3. It aims to inspire more performances, recordings and broadcasts of outstanding UK repertoire, as chosen by UK orchestras, whilst strengthening approaches to programming for the benefit of audiences, composers and players in the UK and overseas. Resonate has received additional financial support from The Foyle Foundation and The Boltini Trust.
In partnership with the ABO, PRS Foundation has updated the database with more outstanding pieces from the last 25 years.
