I am thrilled to be able to support this important organisation who do such exciting and vital work in making classical music accessible to everyone from age 5 to age 90.

I particularly love the fact that everything Jackdaws does involves active participation in music making and gives us all the chance to learn from each other.

Happy 30th Birthday Jackdaws, I look forward to celebrating the future with you.
