The Norfolk Youth Music Award aims to promote, encourage, develop and improve public education in, and appreciation of, the art and science of music in all its aspects within the county of Norfolk.

The grant will help the development of highly-talented Norfolk-based young musicians to pursue careers as professionals by offering annual grants and occasional public-performing opportunities. Successful applicants will already be highly skilled in one or more of the six disciplines (strings, brass, keyboard, percussion, voice and woodwinds) and will be either undergoing a period of study at a music college or specialist school, or who have made plans to do so.

Applicants can apply for up to £500 from the fund.
