We've done it. Well done! With your support we now have the funds to commission and put up the plaque that so many others have tried to establish over the past fifty years.

We've recorded a special message for you with some help from our friends at London's Royal College of Music:

The fundraising campaign closes at 3pm (BST) on Monday if you or anyone you know would still like to support the campaign. Shortly after it ends we will commission the plaque and begin the task of sending out the rewards for pledges that have now become donations. Most importantly, we'll let you know when we are going to unveil the plaque in the Spring of 2015.

Thank you!

      As an Austrian I am proud that this was achieved and grateful to the people in London that Haydn's music reflecting his genious, spirit and humour, has always been highly appreciated there!
