The IAPS Orchestra Trust is one of the most significant bodies promoting the aspirations of the young musicians in this country. Although the Trust has, in the past, provided numerous courses of its own, it is now a grant-giving body whose support is critical to many talented young performers.
Specifically, grants will be awarded to young people aged eight to fourteen who need financial support to attend residential music courses in the United Kingdom.
This means that IAPS Orchestra Trust grants are available in respect of the Young NSSO course and for younger members of the main National Schools Symphony Orchestra. All grants will be means-tested.
Those parents and pupils seeking an IAPSOT grant for attending Young NSSO or NSSO should contact the Chairman of IAPSOT Trustees (see below), who will then send an application form to be completed.
Mr R Smyth
Chairman of Trustees
