We are delighted that three Trinity Laban BMus Year 2 students are recipients of Royal Philharmonic Society’s Instrument Purchase Grants 2022.
Originally established by the Sir John Barbirolli Memorial Foundation, the grant serves to ensure young musicians can train on good quality instruments. This year the Royal Philharmonic Society supported 18 students from eight UK music colleges by providing a total of £16,000 in grants.
