Young aspiring musicians are invited to attend Moreton Hall’s Music Scholarship Assessment Days on Thursday 15th and Friday 16th November.
The Barbirolli Scholarship Days, open to girls aged between 11-16, encourages talented instrumentalists and vocalists to demonstrate their music ability and commitment in the hope of securing future support.
Helen Rayner, Director of Music at Moreton Hall said, “To celebrate the formulation of Barbirolli Society last year the new ‘Barbirolli Scholarships’ have been launched to promote high level music making and cater for dedicated and aspiring musicians both within Moreton Hall and the wider community. “
Moreton Hall has a thriving and award winning music department with excellent facilities, a wide range of musical activities, first-class musical tuition and an outstanding track-record of results at GCSE and A Level. Regular concerts and five musicals per year consistently attain high levels of musical achievement at all levels within the school.
The Barbiroli Society was established to enrich student’s musical awareness and repertoire with dedicated performance coaching from the Royal College of Music, lunchtime concert series, trips to the International Piano Competition, and master-classes from some of the UK’s profound musical performers.
Helen Rayner concluded, “Music-making really is one of the key fundamentals of Moreton Hall's educational experience.”
