London Music Masters and Young Classical Artists Trust are excited to launch a new partnership which will support the shared aims of education, diversity and inclusion within classical music.

The Robey Artist will represent exceptional performers from backgrounds currently under-represented in classical music. Through recommendation and selection, artists will be identified from diverse backgrounds who exhibit the potential for a solo performing career. The Robey Artist will undertake an ambassadorial role within the LMM Learning Programme, working closely with the young learners to becoming an inspirational classical role model.

We are delighted to introduce the first Robey Artist – American violinist, Randall Goosby. Randall Goosby will join YCAT’s roster of artists and take on a London Music Masters school residency. This twin investment in his performance career and his role as an ambassador for education are at the heart of this partnership.

The partnership is further extended with a training programme led by London Music Masters for YCAT artists helping them to build an authentic approach to community music making. We aim to increase the confidence, skills and creativity of these emerging artists enabling them to be as effective in the classroom as they are in the concert hall, across the whole of their career. Additionally, the two organisations will work with leading Diversity and Inclusion specialists to build more inclusive practices through a programme of trustee and staff training and the development of a Diversity and Inclusion roadmap.
