Inverurie Music launched an award scheme for young musicians in April 2019 to mark its 20th Anniversary season. Students attending one of four local schools – Alford, Inverurie, Kemnay, or Meldrum Academies – are eligible to apply for awards to support their musical activities. Details of the scheme, which was supported at its launch by renowned artist Nicola Benedetti, are shown below.
In September 2019, applications opened and by December 2019, thirteen young musicians had received awards of between £100 – £200. Almost £2,000 was distributed to support these talented young musicians, some of whom are pictured below.
Fundraising has already started for the Award Scheme Fund 2020. Details of a fundraising piano recital held in January 2020 can be found here.
