The Finzi Trust awards £15,000 to support TL musicians

Thu 21 January 2021

​Founded in 1969, the Finzi Trust seeks to promote the music of British composer Gerald Finzi and to further his ideals. This includes offering financial assistance to talented young musicians.

In response to the continued struggles caused by the pandemic, the Trust has donated a generous sum of £15,000 to help support Trinity Laban music students facing increasing financial pressures and uncertainty, so that they can continue to pursue their studies with us.

The Finzi Trust’s donation bolsters the TL Student Hardship Fund, which is open to all students across our programmes who are experiencing financial challenges.

Director of Music, Havilland Willshire, comments –

“The generosity of the Finzi Trust sets an exceptional example during these exceptional times. We are most grateful for the Trust’s phenomenal support, which will enable us to offer further assistance to students facing financial challenges during the pandemic.”

Administrator and Trustee of the Finzi Trust, Elizabeth Pooley, comments –

“The Finzi Trust is pleased to offer support towards Trinity Laban’s Hardship Fund for students at this time when the Covid-19 crisis has brought unprecedented financial pressures.”
