The Legacy Circle

The Legacy Circle was established in 2013 to recognise AAM supporters who have agreed to include a legacy to the orchestra in their wills. Dame Emma Kirkby, one of the AAM’s most distinguished performers, is the Circle’s Founder Patron. Members of the Legacy Circle are at the heart of the orchestra’s work and provide security for its continuation. The AAM wishes to acknowledge and thank those who have so generously included legacies to the orchestra in their wills, and we look forward to welcoming new legators to this very special group.

Why leave a legacy?

Leaving a legacy to the AAM ensures that we can continue to bring our music to audiences without compromise. It means that we can maintain our standard of excellence in concert and in our recordings so that future generations can appreciate our music. And because the AAM is a registered charity, leaving a legacy in your will has significant tax benefits. Gifts of any size are welcomed as contributions to the AAM’s endowment fund. However, we are also happy to discuss your intentions to make sure that your legacy is matched to a funding priority of your choosing.

Our pledge to you

We pledge to continue to work with the most gifted artists, to nurture young musical talent and to win global acclaim for our concerts and recordings. Artistic excellence is the AAM’s raison d’être, and we are committed to continuing to reinvigorate the music of the past through historical performance practice.

Our aim is to remain the leading period-instrument ensemble in the world, and to do more than any other organisation to preserve baroque and classical music — making it accessible to audiences old and new, now and always.
