Continuo Foundation projects on OnJam in 2021

What a year 2021 has been! OnJam’s first year has been action-packed, and full of surprises.

One of the best surprises was how many innovative and high quality classical music events appeared on OnJam. So it’s no wonder that global audiences quickly followed.

Despite this, many of these creative projects would not have happened without generous grant funding.

Continuo Foundation emerged as an important supporter of classical ensembles in early music and playing on historical instruments. In addition, it quickly grasped the benefits of online and hybrid concerts for their grantees.

This December and January, we’d like to highlight some of the groups that received support from the Continuo Foundation. All of them used OnJam in 2021 to connect with music-lovers all over the world and earn revenues online.

These are all high quality concerts. The repertoire ranges from the Medieval to the early Romantic periods.

You can financially support any of these groups by purchasing a ticket to their concert on OnJam, or by leaving them a tip or donation. Tickets to online concerts also make an excellent gift for the music-lover in your life!
