We’re the national charity for new music in the UK. Our mission is to maximise the opportunities for people to create and enjoy new music.

We champion new music and the work of British composers and artists, and seek to ensure that they are at the heart of cultural life and enjoyed by many.

We run a number of different programmes and projects for composers and artist to apply to including: our annual opportunity to join our Talent Development programme New Voices, our national touring programme Composer-Curator plus many more…

We are looking for composers and artists creating their own original new music and sound to be part a part of our work and our aims to be representative of the diverse range of composers working across the UK today. 

Some of our current projects include:

. Francis Chagrin Award


New Voices


Our work also includes several Education programmes, for both students and teachers, as well as running both The British Music Collection and The Sampler.
