Aldeburgh Music
Aldeburgh Music is a registered charity delivering music performance, artist development and education, located in converted Victorian malting buildings on the edge of the River Alde in the village of Snape, Suffolk. Originally founded by Benjamin Britten, Peter Pears and Eric Crozier in 1947 as an organisation to present the first Aldeburgh Festival of Music and the Arts in 1948. Aldeburgh Music today carries on the founders' aim of presenting a world-class music programme with its roots in the local community and artist development at its heart, in the inspirational setting of the Suffolk coast.

Each year Aldeburgh Music promotes the Aldeburgh Festival in June, the Snape Proms in August, A Spring/Easter concert series and an Autumn series, together with a year-round performance programme at Snape Maltings and other venues on the Snape site.

The Britten–Pears Young Artist Programme – formerly known as the Britten–Pears School of Advanced Musical Studies - provides development opportunities for musicians early in their professional lives, between the ages of 18 and 25.
