About Us

Harpenden Music Foundation is a registered charity which exists to promote the study and performance of music by young people.
Applicants come from Harpenden and the surrounding area.
Since 1986, HMF is delighted to have helped hundreds of young instrumentalists and singers. We have also supported numerous concerts and musical events.
We offer bursaries and grants to individuals and organisations.

Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic our planned July 2020 fund-raiser has been postponed until 2021; please watch for further announcements.
