Camden Music Trust was started by a group of friends who cared about the provision of music for children in the borough. Their vision was of a charity that could help all children in Camden benefit from music as a formative experience, regardless of parents’ ability to pay. The Friends of Camden Music Service was conceived in 2001 and registered as a charity in 2008.
The Board of Trustees bring together a comprehensive range of experience and skills:
Esther Caplin (Chair), Selina Tang (Treasurer), Ian Baker (Charity Secretary),
Sarah Allen, Bavaani Nanthabalan, Martin Fraenkel, Paul Keene,
David Lindsell, Kam Perera, Dominic Tinley.
Camden Music Trust is very grateful to the amazing generosity of our supporters.
