Sponsor a String!

This is an appeal by Canolfan Gerdd Wlliam Mathias (Music Centre) for funds to pay for three Scholarships of £1500 each as prizes for young harpists  at the Wales International Harp Festival to be held in Caernarfon from 1st –  7th April.

Would you like to sponsor one of  90  strings on a Triple harp?

Interested in sponsoring a Prize-winner in the Wales International Harp Festival held in Caernarfon in April?

Does the idea of helping the studies of a talented young harpist appeal to you?

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!
