Rhinegold Charity Fund rewards Pro Corda
25 March 2014
The Rhinegold Charity Fund, which each year offers £10,000 of advertising spend across Rhinegold Publishing’s wide range of classical music and education publications, websites and services, will benefit Pro Corda Trust for the 2014/15 financial year.
The fund – which will be released on 1 April 2014 – also provides Pro Corda with marketing, design and account management support from the Rhinegold Publishing team.
Pro Corda, which was shortlisted earlier this year for the 2014 Best Classical Music Education Initiative Award at the Music Teacher Awards for Excellence, is a music and educational charity established in 1969 to provide education in the ‘art, philosophy and theory of music’ to young people across the UK.
Following applications from a large number of worthy charities, Pro Corda was selected as the recipient of the fund by Rhinegold’s Board of Directors and newly-appointed Chairman of the Rhinegold Charity Fund, Stephen Turvey.
Stephen Turvey, said ‘I am delighted to have been involved in selecting the recipient of the 2014/15 Rhinegold Charity Fund. Pro Corda’s far-reaching work in the classroom and school halls – it helps over 1500 children per annum – and particularly its work with special educational needs (SEN) children are to be commended. I am confident that this award will help them to build on their impressive achievements to date and make a difference to many more young lives through nurturing live music performance.’
Pro Corda’s CEO and Artistic Director, Andrew Quartermain says, ‘Pro Corda is delighted to receive this award. This will allow us to treble our advertising output for the next year and in particular bring to the fore our national music programme for special educational needs. We are most grateful to Rhinegold for this opportunity.’
Entries for the 2015/16 Charity Fund will open in Autumn 2014. All charities within the music industry are encouraged to apply; full details will be available from www.rhinegold.co.uk/fund.
