THE AVIVA SCHOLARSHIP
FOR ORCHESTRAL BRASS
"As part of my desire to be a freelancing musician, Yoram’s musical and technical insights have been twice their weight in gold. As this is my first year being completely financially independent, the scholarship provided some alleviation to my worries as a modern musician trying to realise my dream."
Andrew Hemsworth, 2021 Aviva Scholarship for Orchestral Brass recipient
