On Wednesday 2nd May 2012, Trinity Laban's Junior Trinity department hosted a
fundraising concert in support of the Junior Trinity Bursary Fund.
We were delighted with a full turnout, despite the event's
proximity to the wettest April on record, and guests enjoyed a
brief respite from the rain on their arrival at our Music Faculty,
King Charles Court, at the Old Royal Naval College in
Following a welcome reception, guests were treated to self-assured performances from some of our talented young students, including sixteen-year-old Anthony Daly, recipient of the Sterndale Adkins Bursary, and twelve-year-old Hebé Ellen Johnson, (pictured below left) recipient of the Loveday Junior Trinity Bursary.
We were thrilled to be joined by guest speaker, 22 year old British conductor Duncan Ward, a Junior Trinity alumnus and current Sir Charles Mackerras Junior Fellow in conducting at Trinity Laban. Duncan is a rising star and is fast emerging as one of the most exciting talents of his generation, and spoke warmly of his time at Junior Trinity, crediting his involvement as having been a critical time for his musical aspirations:
Director of Junior Trinity, Marion Friend, then spoke about the importance of bursaries at Junior Trinity, which ensure that a gifted student is not prevented from receiving the training and support he or she needs and deserves by financial constraints. Our ongoing fundraising efforts are focused on increasing this Fund, and the support available to our talented students.
We would like to thank all those who helped make our fundraising evening a success and are extremely grateful for all the generous donations and pledges which have been made to the Junior Trinity Bursary Fund so far.
