Fidelio welcomes applications for grants in support of the Arts particularly for Music, including Opera, Lieder, Composition and Dance.
Fidelio aims to provide support for individuals (over the age of 21) or groups of exceptional ability, to enable them for example:
- To receive special tuition or coaching (e.g. in the case of musicians to attend Master Classes)
- To participate in external competitions
- To be supported for a specially arranged performance
- To receive support for a special publication, musical composition or work of art
Applications need to be supported by Institutions, Colleges, Arts Festivals or other similar arts organisations in the United Kingdom with recognised relevant expertise. Applications from individuals or groups seeking funding for themselves or their children without such support will not be considered. Applications are not generally considered for activities for people under the age of 21, or for course fees, capital items or retrospective expenditure.
Trustees meetings are normally held three times a year, in the spring, summer and autumn. The closing dates for receipt of applications in 2021 are 5.00 pm on:
- Friday 5 February 2021
- Friday 14 May 2021
- Friday 17 September 2021
