One thought on “Musicians Benevolent Fund”

  1. Fascinating couple of posts Alan, thanks.

    My younger son (the one who intends to be a composer) was very interested in the MBF survey. We notice that few musicians earn money from composition…but of course he is going to be among the few 😉

    The Edinburgh orchestra I play in ( 3 concerts a year, always including a piece by a living composer, and we have commissioned some. I think this is done through a grant, and therefore subsidised. Do you have any idea how much new music is produced in this way?

    I was interested to see Philip’s website – we used to know Philip years ago in Edinburgh, but haven’t seen him for years. He looks well 🙂
