Gucci Timepieces and Jewelry & China Soong Ching Ling Foundation
A partnership with C.S.C.L.F. in support of young talented musicians through the ‘Gucci Timepieces & Jewelry Fund’
In January 2012, Gucci Timepieces & Jewelry in collaboration with the China Soong Ching Ling Foundation (C.S.C.L.F.) launched the ‘Gucci Timepieces & Jewelry Fund’. The Soong Ching Ling Foundation was established as a commemoration of Soong Ching Ling, the late Honorary President of the People’s Republic of China.
Presently, the Fund aims to discover and nurture talented young musicians across China, Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan. It provides scholarships to young talented conductors, musicians, singers and composers selected within the most prestigious music establishments. The students also take part in an international music exchange program in collaboration with the GRAMMY Awards® and The Recording Academy®, other special music partners of Gucci Timepieces & Jewelry. The exchange program includes the opportunity for these students to attend the GRAMMY Camp®s in New York and Los Angeles and to visit the GRAMMY Museum®.
The Music Fund complements the Gucci Timepieces & Jewelry partnership with The Recording Academy®, and confirms Gucci’s commitment to culture, also proven by its longstanding support of The Film Foundation, a non-profit organization founded by Martin Scorsese for the restoration and presentation of prestigious films.
