Supporting emerging young talents and building better communities through classical music
The LYJ Music Foundation seeks to identify and nurture young music talents by, amongst other things, establishing scholarships that directly benefit young musicians who aspire to pursue full time careers in arts and music performance. We also intend to support the promotion of classical music to the general public through various community outreach programs and initiatives.
The Lin Yao Ji Scholarship Program for String Players
The LYJ Music Foundation is pleased to establish the Lin Yao Ji Scholarship Program for String Players (SSP).
In line with Professor Lin Yao Ji’s legacy and lifelong work, one of our key mandates is to identify and nurture young musical talents in the classical music realm. To acheive this, the Foundation is prepared to award need-sensitive scholarships to deserving young musicians who are selected through a rigorous evaluation process.
The SSP will initially target strings players who are residents of Hong Kong or are born in Hong Kong, with a view to expanding to include musicians based in Hong Kong as well as students from the Mainland and overseas.
Applications will open in June 2013. Support for SSP recipients may include:
(a) Affiliation with the Foundation and recognition as a recipient of its Scholarship Program;
(b) Tuition with a renowned artist affiliated with the Foundation;
(c) Support in the selection and arrangement of a suitable teacher as well as the provision of instruments;
(d) Assistance in connecting with established artists and their master-classes; and
(e) Financial support to attend established music programs to further their technique and musicality.
Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis. An Evaluation Panel consisting of members of our Board of Directors, Artistic Advisors, Honorary Advisors, as well as prominent music professionals not affiliated with the Foundation, will determine the number of scholarships to be given, as well as the amount and form of assistance provided in the context of each successful applicant's unique circumstances.
Application materials and detailed eligibility criteria for the Lin Yao Ji Scholarship Program for String Players will be made available in June 2013. In the mean-time, please contact email@example.com for further enquiries.
