Legal & Financial

In partnership with the Musicians' Union we help organists and choral directors with the legal and financial matters which impact on their careers.

Musicians' Union

The RCO delivers its legal and financial support in partnership with the Musicians' Union (MU). Through our joint membership offer, RCO members can join the MU at 50% of the normal subscription rate.

MU membership includes public liability and professional indemnity insurance, personal accident cover and a range of other financial and insurance benefits.

Through the MU, members can also receive advice and support on contracts and rates of pay (and getting paid); on tax and accounting; and on rights and legislation. Read more.
