Stile Antico Foundation
Launched in 2014, the Stile Antico Foundation is a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) dedicated to the advancement and nurturing of choral music. The Foundation, which is financially and structurally independent of Stile Antico, seeks to increase knowledge and appreciation of choral music in several ways:
- by supporting performances and the development of new programmes, principally, though not exclusively, by Stile Antico;
- by supporting workshops and educational projects designed to promote appreciation of choral music at little or no cost to participants;
- by making possible the publication of musical editions and scholarly articles.
The Foundation administers the Friends of Stile Antico, enabling it to make grants to Stile Antico and others in line with these aims. Its immediate projects include a series of Stile Antico workshops on Renaissance repertoire in an inner-London comprehensive school . Longer-term goals include supporting new programmes, the publishing of Stile Antico editions, bursaries for young singers and the commissioning of new works.
The Foundation is grateful for generous support provided by the Brian Mitchell Charitable Settlement.
