CONNECTING WITH MUSIC CREATORS

A career as a music creator can often mean working independently, without a network close by. Our community and networking events provide opportunities for collaboration, sharing advice and mutual support.

OUR EVENTS

Judged by acclaimed songwriters and composers, The Ivors and The Ivors Classical Awards, are some of the most important and respected awards in music.
