BeMuse UK Performing Arts
We established BeMuse UK Performing Arts to: create new forms of presenting classical music, produce new artistic content, initiate artistic collaborations and sponsor art and music education.
We have found an Ambassador in the uniquely talented concert pianist Gala Chistiakova. We sponsored her appearance at the Salzburg Festival Amadeus Weekend in August 2021 which helped her become a Steinway Artist.

We have also sponsored two educational projects, Recondita Armonia, a festival in Grosseto established by Diego Benocci and Gala Chistiakova, and at St Edwards School, Oxford, with music master classes and performances by Gala Chistiakova and Diego Benocci.

We commissioned a play by Ian Kelly, a British playwright, "Playing for Stalin", and we have produced a video installation, "On The Interaction of Image and Sound", in partnership with David Zwirner and the Josef and Anni Albers foundation. The video was realised by Benoit Peverelli and partly sponsored by Steinway and Co.
In the years to come, we aim to sponsor more artistic collaborations creating a community of artists from different fields to bring their ideas together, produce artistic content, facilitate stage opportunities for our artists, and sponsor talented children to study music and performance arts.

We invite you to contact us with your ideas.
