Music:Link Bursary Scheme has now completed its seventh year and we have been
able to award bursaries to 27 young musicians totalling over £8500. 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.
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.
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.”
knowledge I have gained will last me throughout my musical career.”
you for your generosity that enabled me to attend the English Schools Orchestra
course … I got so much out of the experience.”
focus for musical organisations and music-lovers.
