In order to break down disabling barriers to music, Drake Music operates as a registered charity. To achieve our mission, we engage in a variety of ways of generating income. Here, we launch what is, for Drake Music, a new way of raising much needed funds, and for as little as a fiver, you can get involved. Best of it is, by helping Drake Music, you could be in with a chance of being at some of the best gigs of 2018!
Thanks to our friends at Crosstown Concerts, Drake Music launches a Spring prize draw and two auctions for sold out concerts and exclusive music festival access. Up until 10pm on Tuesday 24th April 2018, you can bid for tickets and support Drake Music.
Where will your money go? The money raised from this fundraising initiative will be split equally between three of our projects:
Electric Storm Ensemble – a group which puts adults living in residential settings centre stage, performing at festivals and jamming for fun.
Soundbox – Disabled and non-disabled young people come together for Soundbox, a ground-breaking partnership with Spitalfields Music and The London Symphony Orchestra.
DMLab North West – Disabled musicians co-create wild and wonderful new musical instruments in collaboration with technologists.
