Bursary and Composition Award Winners

2021 

Danielle Walker: Flute

Danielle writes:

" Thank you for my recent bursaries. I think it will be such an ongoing opportunity for me and I am thrilled that you enjoyed my video performances. 

After a lot of thinking my parents and I have decided that once we have paid all the fees for my diploma, the rest of the money is towards a professional flute. As I am fully committed to a music career we decided that it was a very valuable investment to make.........

This would not be possible without your support............."

Christina Schoonakker: Viola

Christina writes: 

I wanted to update you about the bursary money - last year I finally found a baroque bow and purchased it, with exactly all of the bursary! I have different videos of performances I’ve made with it for master applications in Germany, in case you would like to hear! It’s been so useful to have in this difficult time.
