In an ever uncertain landscape, we don’t know what the future for young musicians is going to look like.

Leaving a gift in your will means we can continue to be there for young musicians - whatever challenges the future brings. 

Dr Michael Janson and Varuni would be proud of the excellent work and reassured that the fruits of their life’s work will be shared with future generations to preserve their memory in some way. Each of us has an obligation to make the world a better place before we depart - Michael and Varuni more than fulfilled their obligation and it is comforting to know their legacy is secure with YCAT

How legacy gifts change lives

Without legacy gifts, we wouldn't have been able to continue our work or support as many young musicians as we have in the past 35 years.

Young artists need a platform to get their voices heard and YCAT gave me mine. YCAT helped me build a platform for the work I'll do for the rest of my life while giving me the time and space to experiment, even make mistakes.
