'Personally and artistically, being part of the Philip Langridge Mentoring Scheme is a real privilege. Spending time with Imogen is inspirational, creative and challenging. We talk for hours about anything and everything, go to concerts and galleries and work on repertoire. It is such an incredible support at a critical time and something I will always treasure.' - Alexandra Dariescu, pianist.
When this scheme was launched in 2010 by the Royal Philharmonic Society in Philip’s memory, over £120,000 was given by friends, family and a great number of music-lovers who had heard him sing and wanted to continue his life’s work. Philip understood the challenges of a professional career in music and thought it our duty and our privilege to help.
You can play a part in supporting these talented young musicians at a critical time in their careers, when technical, practical and emotional support is needed most.
Please help our work with mentoring young musicians by making a donation to the Royal Philharmonic Society (Charity no. 213693) by clicking the button below.
The more help we get from you, the more young musicians we can find perfect mentors for. Even a modest monthly gift will make all the difference, enabling us to plan for the future, confident that we have your support to make two-year commitments to mentors and mentees.
Please also think about leaving a gift in your Will in appreciation of a lifetime’s pleasure from music. Some leave us a specified sum of money, while others choose to leave us the residue of their estate once family and friends have been looked after. All gifts, large and small, given now or pledged in the future, will help support talented young musicians for the next generation to fall in love with.
A simple addition or codicil can be added to your Will by contacting your solicitor. Please find more information here, and thank you.
