The Mathieson Music School in Kolkata, India, was founded by Anup Kumar Biswas in memory of the Revd Theodore Mathieson, Father Superior of the Anglican Brotherhood of the Epiphany, who died in 1994. The school gives deprived Indian children a rounded education and a future through music. The children are selected on a basis of need, coming from destitute, illiterate families. The children are instructed in both Western and Indian classical music. The school needs financial support for day-to-day running costs. A new senior school building, the St John’s International School, is about to be built. www.mathiesonmusictrust.org
