Our support goes towards twelve emerging orchestra leaders to develop their leadership skills and knowledge of the orchestral sector. The programme will involve a twelve months of training and mentoring, placements in orchestras and an intensive residential period. Find Your Way addresses a need for supported routes into orchestral leadership, in particular for a diverse range of individuals.

The project is also supported by ABO Trust and Help Musicians UK.
