Congratulations to the successful applicants below:
Peter Lynn & Partners Music Development Bursary
This award is for a young musician aged 14-19 years to support attendance at a summer school or orchestral course or to fund purchase of music, a series of music lessons or other music related costs.
Jenn Milne Music for All Bursary
Jenn Milne was a longstanding entries secretary for AFYM who also organised the festival’s Schools’ Day every year. As a teacher and arts lover she cared passionately about providing access to opportunity for every child and helped many children to reach their potential. Jenn’s husband Ian kindly donates this bursary in her memory. This year the bursary will be awarded to a young musician aged 9-13 years to support attendance at a summer school or orchestral course or to fund purchase of music, a series of music lessons or other music related costs. (Parents/guardians may assist young applicants for this bursary!)
