Wolfgang Schutt's Birthday Fund

Wolfgang Schutt's Birthday Fund

Why we need your help


I am turning 80 and I have had a lifetime of musical activities which has given me and others, I hope, a lot of fun. For this birthday, I would like to share that pleasure with those who are not fortunate enough to play an instrument by donating to the Music Fund, which I find is a brilliant initiative.

Starting with piano, I played the school organ, directed a brass band and aged 16, directed the Kindersymphony with the school orchestra. I assume Haydn would have approved the lederhosen. Over the years, I have sung, accompanied singers and instrumentalists, conducted choirs, arranged music and have been musical director for shows. I feel music is a combination of pleasure, feeling, listening, creating, physical exercise and mathematics (Bach was great at that). Like Mozart, I enjoy humour in music. You can find an example of this in introduction to Beethoven (

During the COVID-19 pandemic, I have been rehearsing in preparation of a new show, first directing the songs with Zoom and the keyboard and later at sing-alongs, all masked, of course, in various gardens. As the Germans say, “wo man singt da lass dich ruhig nieder, böse Menschen haben keine Lieder“  (Where there is song, you can safely stay, nasty people have no songs)

What a lovely idea, Wolfgang. There are so many of us who have had years of pleasure by practising music in one way or another, and to be able to repay that in some way needs someone like you to gather us all together to do that!
