Awards for Young Musicians appoints new trustees10:49, 14th September 2020
UK charity Awards for Young Musicians has appointed three new members to its board of trustees, including two alumni, Mahaliah Edwards and Caius Lee.
Edwards was first supported by AYM at the age of 16, when she was awarded funding towards a new violin which enabled her to audition successfully for the Purcell School.
Lee received funding from AYM for piano lessons at the age of 15 and is now organ scholar at St Catharine’s College, Cambridge.
Joining them is Tom Sharpe QC, a barrister and former trustee of Help Musicians UK.
AYM chief executive Hester Cockcroft said:’ AYM is a learning organisation: we want to continue to develop and improve what we do and how we do it. A range of voices and experiences are vital to this process, so we’re delighted to welcome Mahaliah, Caius and Tom to the board.’
