The Jill Wellby Award for Musical Achievement 2024

Applications are invited for the new Jill Wellby Award for Musical Achievement.

The Jill Wellby Award was set up in 2023 following the sad loss of one of our greatest supporters and it replaces the Maggie Perryman and John Bolitho Award, set up in 2012. The Award is given yearly to a young person demonstrating Musical Achievement and we are now offering £250 to the winner and £100 to the runner-up.

Applicants must satisfy one or more of the following criteria:

· Have shown exceptional improvement

· Have contributed substantially to music in the community

· Have overcome difficulties

Previous winners are not eligible to apply. The application form must be completed by the Instrument teacher, the Head of Music or Head Teacher and signed by the Parent or Guardian. The deadline for applications this year is Friday 31st May and winners will be announced on Friday 14th June. There will be a prize-giving ceremony at a summer party in July.
