Bursary Awards

MUSIC:LINK made two bursary awards in 2014
to a young performer to attend the
Musicale Young Artists' Programme at Harpenden

and to a young flautist to participate in the
Symphonic Wind Band Tour to the Rhineland; Germany


Part of MUSIC:LINK’s constitution as a Registered Charity
requires that we promote music and its development
within the Lincolnshire and East Midlands area.

The MUSIC:LINK Bursary Scheme
gives assisted funding for attendance
at Workshops and Masterclasses or similar courses
to promising, talented young musicians of school age
to encourage them to reach a standard
where they can give public perfomances.

If you know of any promising young musicians
who you feel could benefit from
any aspect of this Scheme
please contact MUSIC:LINK.

Applications for 2015 Bursaries will close on
1st March 2015.

Whilst membership of Music:Link is not a requirement
for our accepting applications and nominations,
preference will be given
to applications and nominations from
schools, teachers and organisations
who are members of, or who are affiliated to MUSIC:LINK.

Please note, previous recipients of bursary awards
are not eligible for consideration.

The Music:Link Bursary Scheme has now completed its eighth year and we have been able to award bursaries to 28 young musicians totalling over £9,000. We believe that it is important for us all to encourage and support young musicians so that the continued perfomance of LIVE music is assured.

Applications for awards have come from a wide variety of disciplines and we have provided bursaries for a ’Cellist,
Cornet Players, Euphonium Players, Flautists, a Guitar Player, Organists, Percussionist, Pianist, Saxophonist, Singers, Trumpeter, Trombonists and Violinists. We received many more applications and, had we had more funds available, we would have been able to give financial support to more young musicians.

The value of the awards to these young musicians are summed up in their own words:

“Words could not possibly describe the unforgettable experiences I had on my week at EYSM, I could easily describe the week at Haileybury as the most sensational week of my life.”
“Thank you very much. It was a fantastic experience that I will remember for a long time!”
“I could never have imagined that such a huge transformation could take place in so many people in such a short period of time.”
“I was so honoured to be awarded the bursary … …but nothing could have prepared me for the incredible opportunities I would experience.”
“The knowledge I have gained will last me throughout my musical career.”
“Thank you for your generosity that enabled me to attend the English Schools Orchestra course … I got so much out of the experience.”

A focus for musical organisations and music-lovers.
