To promote, encourage, maintain, develop and improve public education in, and appreciation of, the art and science of music in all its aspects within the county of Norfolk.
The trust also aims to help the development of highly-talented Norfolk-based young musicians to pursue careers as professionals by offering annual grants and occasional public-performing opportunities.
Successful applicants will already be highly skilled in one or more of the six disciplines (brass, keyboard, percussion, strings, voice and woodwind) and will be either undergoing a period of study at a music college or specialist school, or who have made plans to do so.
The trust is delighted to announce the winners of the annual round of grants.
They are the flautist, piccolo-player and pianist Megan Storer from Gorleston, Great Yarmouth (£1,000); and the flautist and piccolo-player Caitlin Obee from Norwich (£750).
Megan is currently in her first year at the Trinity Laban Conservatoire (London) and Caitlin has plans to sign up for a period of study with the renown flute-player Anna Noakes, a Professor at the Trinity Laban Conservatoire.
Both young musicians have been awarded the Diploma in flute-playing - Megan at Trinity and Caitlin at the London College of Music.
They trustees wish both Megan and Caitlin all possible success in their studies.
Over £27,000 has now been awarded to young musicians.
To this end, the trust resumes its grant-making function from January 2016.
