We are making a difference to the lives and careers of musicians.


As coronavirus swept the world, and concerts everywhere were cancelled, we realised that Good Friday 2020 may very well be the first without a sung live Passion since the middle ages.

So Oxford Bach Soloists and Positive Note set about assembling an all-star cast for a 'St John Passion from isolation', the first instalment of which will be premiered on YouTube on Good Friday 10 April at 3pm.

With many musicians suffering during these challenging times, it seemed only right that this special concert be held in aid of Help Musicians UK, a wonderful charity who do life-saving work.

Our thanks go to all the performers, technicians and administrators who have given their time and considerable talents to pull this all together.

And of course to you, our audience and friends. Thank you for any donation you can make to Help Musicians UK through this page. It *will* make a difference. Oh, and don't forget Gift Aid!

Thank you!
