Registered Charity Number: 309268 (England & Wales).

Since 1882, the Royal College of Music (RCM) has provided specialist musical education and professional training at the highest international level for the most gifted young musicians, regardless of their financial means. For the fifth consecutive year in 2020, the RCM was rated top conservatoire for performing arts in the UK in the QS World University rankings; in 2020 we were also rated top in Europe.

The RCM relies on gifts in Wills of all sizes to help us secure the future of music and plan with the ambition befitting a world-class conservatoire. Legacy gifts enable us to provide state-of-the-art facilities, inspirational masterclasses, valuable outreach work in our community and life-changing scholarship opportunities for the most talented young musicians to thrive under our expert tuition. We also welcome gifts of fine stringed instruments to add to our living collection for our students to play.

So we can thank and recognise our many generous legacy supporters, all pledgers are invited to join the RCM Legacy Ensemble, receiving invitations to special events and updates on our important work.
