Introducing the 2023 PlayON Fund

The Commonwealth Resounds is thrilled to announce the second year of our PlayON fund, an initiative dedicated to supporting grassroots music projects across the globe. This year, we are proud to partner with ABRSM (Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music), a leading music education organisation that is generously funding these impactful projects.

Our mission is to harness the power of music to transform lives and create lasting positive change. Through the PlayON fund, we provide essential resources and support to music projects that make a difference in communities worldwide.
