Membership

The Musicians’ Company is a City of London Livery Company, being 50th in order of precedence.  Find our more about Livery Companies here.

We are proud of our strong heritage and welcome membership enquiries from those who are interested in actively preserving high quality music for future generations.

Membership of the Musicians’ Company begins with the Freedom of the Company – a title that once meant you were free to practise your art within the confines of the City of London. It now entitles you to participate in many Company activities and events. Freemen are invited to become Liverymen once commitment to the Company and its work have been demonstrated. This influential title gives access to all Company social events, many other Livery and City functions and entitles you to vote for the Sheriffs and Lord Mayor of the City of London.

The Musicians’ Company, whilst focused on the City of London, is international and is always keen to admit new members, men and women.  Please read the information on application and membership rates here: WCOM Membership Information 2020, and access application form here: The Musicians Company Membership Application Form 2020.  Please email your form, or any further questions, to our Membership Secretary.

Our Members help gifted musicians benefit from a raft of support including scholarships, prizes, medals and performance opportunities, and help spread the life-affirming benefits of music through community engagement and outreach.
