The Drake Calleja Trust

I am the chairman of the Drake Calleja Trust working alongside Matthew Hargreaves to provide musical scholarships and/or grants for those with exceptional musical talent, particularly those from socially or economically disadvantaged backgrounds. The Trust is honoured to be associated with Joseph Calleja, the Maltese tenor, who acts as Patron.


There is a separate section of the Trust (the Drake YolanDa Award) for non-classical music led by the celebrated saxophonist and philanthropist YolanDa Brown. This supports emerging artists across the UK on their musical journey.
