About

POLYPHONY arts

Polyphony Arts is an arts and artist management organisation founded and managed by Katie Beardsworth. It began in early 2018 (as Beardsworth Arts), when Katie went freelance in order to have more flexibility and choice over her work, and to spend the right amount of time with her young family.

Since then, our client base and range of projects has widened enormously and diversified in truly inspiring ways.  We have developed a remote team of fantastic arts experts, to allow the business to grow. 

Polyphony Arts focuses on classical music artist management and project management. We are all about clarity, inclusivity, flexibility, and making life and work be the best it can possibly be.

Specific services that we provide include: promotion of artists to a large international database of contacts; festival and event management; strategic and artistic planning for arts festivals and organisations; publicity work including copywriting, press and media releases, social media management, and website updating.

We also offer funding support (we have a proven track record of successful fundraising) including grant applications, corporate sponsorship packages, and individual giving programmes such as Friends schemes; and tour management, amongst many other things.

And we regularly collaborate with Classic FM, through projects and artist promotion. Get in touch to find out how we can help you!

You can read more about our team, projects and artists on this website, and follow us on social media at the links below.
