musicLINK Bursary Scheme
“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.”
The MusicLINK Bursary Scheme has just awarded it's last ever grant. Very many congratulations to all the 58 recipients who have been supported over the years. The MusicLINK Bursary has made grants totaling over £31,000 during it's years of giving, this is certainly an amazing achievement and one to be very proud of.
The scheme was devised to encourage and support young musicians to help ensure the continued performance of live music. During it's time the scheme has provided funding for 58 promising young musicians to attend invaluable workshops and master classes and other courses that they may not otherwise be able to, helping them reach their musical potential and become the next generation of musicians in the region.
Applications for awards have come from a wide variety of disciplines and bursaries have been granted to a cellist, cornet players, euphonium players, flautists, a harpist, a guitar player, organists, percussionist, pianists, saxophonists, singers, trumpeter, trombonists and violinists.
A special thanks and congratulations must be given to the voluntary trustees and administrators of the MusicLINK Bursary, especially Keith Jobling; who’s hard work and passion over the years has enabled this support for the musical development of young people across Lincolnshire and the East Midlands.
