Inspiring  musical & artistic talent for over 70 years

Since 1952 the Royal Over-Seas League has supported the careers of the most talented young musicians and artists.

Our outstanding and unparalleled programmes have offered our alumni an artistic ‘home’ with experienced mentorship and advice, networking, promotional support and concert opportunities around the world.

From those crucial early career stages in a challenging industry to becoming part of our family of creatives who continue to connect with us throughout their careers, ROSL is there for them.

Support the next  generation

The Royal Over-Seas League is committed to investing in future generations of exceptional international musical and artistic talent, offering comprehensive mentorship, support, and high-level performance and exhibition opportunities at a crucial time in their development.

Supporters like you make the crucial difference to our work and enable us to do so much more to help these young talents.

Your donation will go directly towards funding scholarships for young musicians and visual artists, as well as supporting our Annual Music Competition, artist residencies and our work encouraging future generations in both the UK and internationally.

Increase our Reach

Double the number of international entries to the ROSL Annual Music Competition and help fund their travel and accommodation to London to perform in the semi-final and final rounds.

Create a Performance Archive

We aim to professionally record all performances in the competition, for international broadcast on Classical Music channels and for future generations to enjoy.

Increase Support & Development

Significantly increase our support for further concert opportunities for our prize-winners, forging new international partnerships with promoters and festivals in Commonwealth, USA and European countries. Developing our young musicians and artists is a key aim of our ongoing work and arts programme.

Widen our International Outreach

We are keen to increase our international outreach programmes, supporting more young musicians, artists and photographers than ever before. By widening these opportunities, we can nurture and offer mentorship to even more artistic talent globally.
