Established in memory of Aviva Orgad, mother of TSO Principal Trumpet Yoram Levy, the annual Aviva Scholarship for Orchestral Brass commenced in 2020.

"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."
