THE MUNSTER TRUST AND THE LONDON SCHOOLS SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA
We are very excited to announce that, in a wholly new venture, the Munster Trust is now supporting a number of bursaries to school-age children to help out with the costs of attending the wonderful LSSO courses and Barbican concerts. More information about the first LSSO Munster Trust Scholars will shortly be available elsewhere on the website but, in the meantime, we would like to thank Peter Ash, the artistic director of the LSSO, for organising the Trust’s involvement with the LSSO and for the amazing concert last night at the Barbican Hall, conducted by Ryan Wigglesworth with soloist Rachel Nicholls (soprano) (a former beneficiary of the Munster Trust). With an ambitious programme of Strauss and Wagner, the excitement of the young musicians was tangible and the performances were vibrant and thrilling. For more information about the work of the LSSO, please click here and for a review of the concert see, for instance, this from Susan Elkin for Lark Reviews.
