You've spent 1 minute in the world of a composer

Have you ever wondered why a piece of music sounds the way it does?
Have you ever spent time with a composer and lifted the lid on their music?

Stuart MacRae is just one of the exciting composers on Music Patron.
Music Patron is a brand new platform that enables composers to continue creating new music by inviting music lovers to connect with and truly support them.

What is Music Patron?

Historically patrons and patronage formed an important part of a composer’s income and sustainability. We want to reimagine this idea for the 21st century! It’s not just for the privileged and the wealthy. For a small monthly donation, you too could be part of this movement and in the composition of brand-new works. 

About the composer

Born in Inverness, Stuart MacRae has established himself as one of the most distinctive composers working today, writing music of elemental power and emotional subtlety. Equally at home writing opera, orchestral music, chamber music and music for choirs, Stuart’s work explores themes of humanity in/as nature, the use of language through the singing voice, and mythology. 

Read how one of Stuart’s patrons was so moved that he was: 
“transported in time and place… I could feel tears of connection and sadness and joy and love gathering in the corner of my eyes”
