Become a Patron

Since 1952 the Royal Over-Seas League has supported the careers of the most talented young musicians and artists.

Our outstanding and unparalleled programmes have offered our alumni an artistic “home” with experienced mentorship and advice, networking, promotional support and concert opportunities around the world. From those crucial early career stages in a challenging industry to becoming part of our family of creatives who continue to connect with us throughout their careers, ROSL is there for them.

Supporters like you make the crucial difference to our work and enable us to do so much more to help these young talents. Your donation will go directly towards funding scholarships for young musicians and visual artists, as well as supporting our Annual Music Competition, artist residencies and our work encouraging future generations of talent in both the UK and internationally including Antigua and Barbuda and Kenya.

Geoff Parkin

Artistic Director
