The John Thornton Young Achievers Foundation has supported the Coda Fiddle Orchestra for five years, providing music scholarships for students who have been assessed as showing above average ability. The John Thornton Music Scholarships fund one to one music support and violin tuition, together with the cost of instrument maintenance, sheet music and exam fees. Isabella Zhang, Wiktoria Walinska, Isabella Lopez, Katherina Lopez, Lewis Hunt, James Rees and Michelle Tsang have been selected for awards this year and we wish them every success.
The awards will be presented later in the year but we were delighted to have the opportunity to enjoy a performance by Isabella Zhang (pictured above left) and Wiktoria Walinska (centre) at the Bournemouth and Poole College Volunteering Fayre. They are pictured with Director of the Coda Fiddle Orchestra, Jack Maguire.
