• Jazz

    Since 2008, EFG has been a supporter of the London Jazz Festival, the UK’s largest annual celebration of jazz that takes place every November. In 2013, we became the headline sponsor of the Festival, which is now known as the EFG London Jazz Festival.

    The EFG Excellence Series forms part of the EFG London Jazz Festival and is a programme of world-class performances from some of the leading lights in jazz. In recent years, it has featured concerts from performers including Sonny Rollins, Herbie Hancock, Kurt Elling, Courtney Pine, Gilberto Gil, Cleo Laine & John Dankworth, McCoy Tyner, Alison Krauss and Paolo Conte.

  • Classical music

    In the UK, EFG is the principal partner of Southbank Sinfonia, an orchestra that provides a springboard into the orchestral profession for talented young musicians. We also support the Young British Soloists' Competition organized by the Orchid Music Charitable Trust.



    In 2013, EFG established a relationship with Benjamin Grosvenor, winner of the Gramophone Young Artist of the Year Award 2012. This is designed to assist the pianist in the development of his international career for at least the next three years.

    Benjamin's is an extraordinary talent that has been recognized around the world. He has achieved much in a short space of time, and there is much more to come as he continues his remarkable musical journey.

    EFG also supports a range of events in conjunction with Gramophone magazine, including the prestigious Gramophone Classical Music Awards.
