Cerdd Powys Music Bursaries for Young Musicians

Cerdd Powys Music supports Powys young musicians by providing a bursary to assist with the costs of attending National Welsh or UK based Children’s or Youth Orchestras, for example, the National Youth Arts Wales Ensembles, or National Youth Ensembles of Great Britain. The bursary supports 50% of the cost of the training up to a maximum of £150. One application is available per young musician per year.


If you, or someone you know, is 24 years old or under and would like to apply for a bursary, please contact the Lucy Bevan, Senior Arts Officer, email arts@powys.gov.uk or by post at Powys Arts, The Drama Centre, Tremont Road, Llandrindod Wells, Powys, LD5 1EB. You will need to include a copy of the letter from the organisation inviting you to take part in the ensemble and showing evidence of the cost of attending the orchestra. Your application will then be assessed for eligibility.
