We’re delighted that the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation has decided to support Sounding Out for a second time. The Foundation was one of the first funders to come on board and make our initial plans for the new programme possible in 2012, allowing us to work with the first group, from which emerged the band Platform 7. This grant will support the continuation of the programme, demonstrating the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation’s commitment to supporting the creative development of individuals from a broad spectrum of backgrounds: five other awards were made, including to the BRIT School, Hall for Cornwall and the Almeida Theatre – full details here .
All of us would like to thank the Trustees of the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation for continuing to support this important work. You can read the evaluation of the first phase of Sounding Out here.
