Your support will help us to ensure that all talented young artists are able to reach their full potential and go on to move generations of audiences with their talent. 

The difference you can make 

Since its foundation, the generosity of YCAT supporters like you has ensured young musicians are nurtured to reach their full potential.

Each year we need to raise over £380,000 to underpin our work with emerging artists - your support, at any level, will play a crucial part in future careers of the artists we nurture.

I’m so pleased how YCAT has grown since I first joined, more musicians to help, more particular help from the astounding small team at YCAT. When I spot former YCAT alumni leading an orchestra, playing in the band for a musical, joining senior artists at Oxford Lieder, becoming ‘artist in residence’ - I feel a small possessive  thrill as I replied, “Of course, they’re YCAT.
