Would you like to donate a sum of your own choice towards a scholarship for a young harpist under 19 years of age?
If so, you will be interested in :-
The Youth Competition in the Wales International Harp Festival is for young harpists who are 19 or under. The Prizes are three equal scholarships of £1500 meant to help the winners pay for a series of lessons from a specialist harp tutor of their choice.
A copy of an 18th century Triple Harp (with 90 strings on it) is exhibited at Galeri Caernarfon. A Label with the name of a sponsor is tied on to one of its strings when sponsorship is received from a kind and generous individual.
The cost of specialist music tuition can be prohibitive to many families and a scholarship of £1500 would make a great deal of difference to develop a young harpist’s potential. As a guide one hour’s lesson can cost between £40 and £100.
There are 90 strings to sponsor and any contribution would be welcome!
