Our donors make our music happen: affordable concerts, accessible education and high-level research.

For more than four decades, the Academy of Ancient Music has been changing the way the world hears some of the greatest music ever written. We have got this far thanks to the generosity of our supporters: but there is much more to do.

We are ambitious: presenting masterpieces; working with leading artists of our time; releasing more recordings; and delving deep into the past with doctoral research projects on Beethoven’s contemporaries. Off-stage, we are determined to introduce more and more young and disadvantaged people to music via a major expansion of our outreach programme, AAMplify.

We can only do this, and continue to heighten the levels of excellence for which we are renowned, with your help. By supporting AAM you play an essential role in sustaining our excellent performances, recordings, and education, bringing more early music experiences to more people every year.
