Music for Everyone has something for you. We are a welcoming, vibrant, supportive community creating positive musical experiences for people of all ages and abilities.

Music for Everyone (est. 1983) is committed to making a difference to people’s lives through the creativity and enjoyment of music.
We support people to discover and develop their musical interest, abilities and aspirations at all levels. Music for Everyone is an open, welcoming and collaborative organisation. We build a sense of community and belonging through the high quality musical experiences we provide for participants, audiences and our staff. We aspire to enhance the inclusivity of our programme by building partnerships with likeminded organisations, so we can reach more people through our work.

As well as having a small and dedicated staff, Music for Everyone has over 400 subscribing members who regularly take part in core parts of our programme, 200 friends who support the organisation within their communities and through financial assistance and about 200 volunteers who do a huge range of work for the organisation from running vital parts of the programme to assisting at events.

We also run a Patrons Scheme supported by a number of local businesses and private individuals, with major sponsorships-in-kind from Nottingham Trent University and The University of Nottingham. Music for Everyone is a key partner in the Nottingham Music Hub.

Brief History
Music for Everyone was originally formed as the Nottingham Choral Trust in 1983 by Angela Kay, its Artistic Director. The first choral weekend for adults was devoted to the Verdi Requiem with a choir of two hundred and a performance in Nottingham’s Royal Concert Hall.

The founding aim was to promote weekend choral courses and concerts for singers from all walks of life in the Nottingham area. Committed from the beginning to an imaginative and adventurous approach to choral music, the work of the Trust has developed rapidly since then. Today Music for Everyone has eleven performing groups, both adult and youth, choral and instrumental, involving over one thousand participants. We also present a varied programme of high quality concerts per season and work throughout the year in developing education programmes with local schools.
