How you can help: typesetting
If you have skills in typesetting music in MuseScore, Sibelius or Finale, do please contact us. We have some modest funding available to commission new typesetting.

How you can help: performing
And if you are a solo performer or part of a small chamber group, again do please contact us. We are always interested to hear from enthusiasts.

How you can help: sponsoring
If you would like to step forward and fund the typesetting of CBR's two symphonies, we would be very glad to hear from you. Dan Rootham can be reached through our Feedback page.
