The Association of British Orchestra's (ABO) Sirens Fund was founded by Diane Ambache in 2016 to support for projects to raise the awareness and appreciation of music written by historic women composers from around the world. 

For the 2020 round, seven orchestras have received funding including Bath Philharmonia, Manchester Camerata, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, Royal Northern Sinfonia, Scottish Chamber Orchestra, Southbank Sinfonia and Ulster Orchestra who will give performances of music by Grazyna Bacewicz (1909-1969), Anna Amalia von Sachsen-Weimar-Eisenach (1739-1807), Amy Beach (1867-1944), Helena Munktell (1852-1919), Clara Schumann(1819-1896), Grace Williams (1906-1977) and Elizabeth Maconchy (1907-1994).

Applications have now opened for the ABO’s latest round of grants from its Sirens Fund which offers UK orchestras with financial support for projects to raise the awareness and appreciation of music written by historic women composers from around the world. Open to full and associate members of the ABO, the deadline for receipt of applications is 1 March 2021.
