Award 1 – Non-Professional Performing Groups

Music Capital Scheme 2017 – Award 1 is intended to support the purchase, maintenance and/or repair of instruments by organisations involved in the non-professional performance of music. It is open directly to non-professional performing groups / ensembles in any genre. It is also open to community, youth and resource organisations and local authorities who oversee music performance in the non-professional sector. Note: applications must relate to instruments that will be used by non-professional performers only, and instruments must be used for rehearsal / tuition and performance.

Award 2 – Individual Professional Performing Musicians

Music Capital Scheme Award 2 is designed to provide support for highly-skilled performing musicians working at a professional level who seek support for the purchase of high quality instruments that are central to their performing career. This award is open to musicians working in any musical genre. It is targeted at those working regularly as a high-level performer in a solo capacity or as part of a small group / chamber ensemble.
