The Countess of Munster Musical Trust
The Trust was founded in 1958 by the Countess of Munster (Hilary Wilson), who devoted her life to music and who was herself a pianist of considerable talent.
Lady Munster’s generous endowment, from which the Trust’s annual income is derived, currently provides awards totalling up to £250,000 to young musicians to support postgraduate studies. The Trust also provides a small number of instrument purchase loans to former beneficiaries and runs a Recital Scheme.
