As a result of our campaign, we supported the work of three female composers and have been able to secure future performances for these works and therefore more work for ourselves. That in turn has led to other composers being able to secure funding to write more music to programme alongside these new pieces. Without Jo’s comprehensive and clear support, we wouldn’t have raised the required amount. Without a shadow of a doubt. I think we’d have had to cancel our project. Which would have been devastating for us and our professional reputation.
