Trusts and Foundations

In addition to our major grant as a National Portfolio Organisation, British Youth Opera receives valuable support from a range of charitable trusts and foundations towards our artistic programming and training.

We are always keen to forge new partnerships with trusts and foundations which will help us to deliver our mission to train the next generation of opera professionals. For more information please contact David Balcombe, Executive Director, on 020 7815 6092 or
