“When Continuo Foundation announced their first grants in 2021, it was a ray of hope in what was otherwise a bleak landscape for musicians. Since then, they have worked tirelessly to support the development of new and exciting musical ventures, and I couldn’t be more proud to support their work going forward as a Patron.”
